Lawton: Storm drains aren't for dumping

(Source KSWO) (Source KSWO)

LAWTON, OK (KSWO) –The City of Lawton wants to remind everyone that whatever goes down a storm drain ends up in local creeks.

Grass clippings, fertilizer, pesticide, paint, motor oil and waste adds up and pollutes the water. Anything dumped into a storm drain flows through creeks and ends up in the water you drink, fish in and swim. The City of Lawton says you can help prevent this by not putting anything in the storm drains.

Only rain down the storm drain.

If you see anything being dumped into a storm drain, leaks or spills, call the Stormwater Hotline at 580-581-3565.

You can learn more about the city’s Stormwater Management Division here.
