LAWTON, OK (KSWO) -If you see discharges, leaks or spills going into storm drains, Lawton’s Stormwater Management Division wants you to report it.

The department wants to remind everyone that pet waste, fertilizer, pesticide, soap, trash, dirt, oil, gas, grease and any and everything else can get into the storm water system. Those contaminants can harm the environment and wildlife.
