Program Summary

When rain falls in the Town of Fountain Hills, runoff water is collected by many different types of inlets. The water is then routed via curbs/gutters, pipes, open channels and other conveyances to community retention basins, parks, and area floodways. The runoff does not go to a treatment plant.

In order to protect the quality of stormwater runoff, the Town of Fountain Hills obtained a permit from the Environmental Protection Agency in 2003. That permit requires Fountain Hills to implement a number of different programs called Best Management Practices (BMPs). Some of these BMPs include:

  • Retention Basin Maintenance
  • Storm Drain Maintenance
  • Street Sweeping
  • Oversight of Construction Sites
  • Public Education
  • Oversight of Industrial Facilities
  • Support of Oil Recycling

In addition to these BMPs, the Town of Fountain Hills has adopted ordinance 14-7, which prohibits the discharge of pollutants into the storm drain system.
