Storm Water Management

To manage storm water runoff, the Austin Community Landfill uses silt fences, rock dams, erosion control mats, and other best management practices. Erosion control devices, including storm water ditches and channels, are inspected weekly and after each significant rainfall to ensure that their intended purpose is accomplished. When necessary, sediment is removed and repairs made to the system. The program is implemented and maintained under the Texas Pollution Discharge Elimination System (TPDES) general permit.
