Fort Bend Levee Improvement District No. 6 and Fort Bend County have experienced heavy rainfall over the past 24 hours. Everything is draining as designed, but we are expecting additional rainfall in the next couple of days. Please remove all trash cans from the street and check your outfall drains to make sure everything is clear. If you see significant street flooding, do not drive through it. Residents should monitor the Fort Bend County Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Management at https://fbcoem.org for up to date weather and flooding notices.

Did you know that the stormwater currently receives no treatment?
Water that flows into your storm water drainage system goes directly into our creeks, bayous, rivers, and bays. Because standards of water quality affect every resident in Fort Bend County LID 6, remembering “only rain down the drain” and adhering to this approach will help improve the water quality of our streams, rivers and lakes.
Non-allowable discharges, such as out waste, grass clippings, tree trimmings, oils and grease are a violation of a state-issued stormwater permit. Making an illegal discharge into the storm sewer may be punishable by fines and/or water service termination, per your District’s rate order.
Remember, whatever is put down the storm drain is untreated and flows into the Waters of the USA!
If you see any spills or illegal dumping into the storm drains, Fort Bend County LID 6’s Operator, or Storm Water Solutions should be contacted as soon as possible. Call the Storm Water Solutions 24-hour phone number at 713.935.1044, or you can use cleanbayous.org to file a report.
