Stormwater Quality, Maintenance and Pollution Control
The City of Mesquite’s education program has the goal of reducing pollution in stormwater runoff. This program targets the public, as well as commercial and industrial owners and operators within Mesquite.
Education of the public is accomplished by the Public Works Department through public presentations at conferences and seminars, and presentations at local schools and neighborhood gatherings.
Staff members distribute educational materials at events and public locations, and press releases and articles inform the public about environmental concerns, including ways to reduce pollution in storm water runoff. Information is also provided to the public through articles included in the monthly utility bill stuffer.
Another part of the Stormwater Education program educates commercial and industrial owners and or operators about their responsibility to reduce the pollution in storm runoff.
