Storm Water Management Program

Explanation of the Program

"Stormwater runoff is transported through municipal separate storm sewer systems (MS4s), and then often discharged, untreated, into local water bodies. All stormwater in Bixby eventually discharges into the Arkansas River. The City of Bixby is required to develop a stormwater management plan (SWMP) under a Stormwater Discharge Permit. The SWMP describes the stormwater control practices that will be implemented consistent with permit requirements to minimize the discharge of pollutants from the sewer system into the Arkansas River." 

Public Works Director, Bea Aamodt. 

You may also view the Environmental Protection Agency’s Regulations for Stormwater Discharges from Municipal Sources for further information.

Report Problems

Part of the SWMP, asks property owners to help monitor what they observe going into the storm sewers, and to report any discharge of grass, mud, oil, grease, or other chemicals into the storm sewer. You may do so by using the Report Stormwater Issues Form


We would like any feedback, questions or comments you may have. Feel free to contact Public Works Director, Bea Aamodt
