Impervious surfaces are areas covered by buildings, asphalt, concrete, or other materials that prevent water from seeping directly into the ground. When it rains, much of the water flows to streams and lakes, becoming stormwater runoff.
The more buildings, streets, and parking lots we build, the more surface stormwater runoff is generated during each rainstorm.
Best Management Practices
Ways that we can help clean up stormwater runoff is to direct it through stormwater ponds, treatment wetlands, and other types of systems knows as Best Management Practices (BMPs). Pollutants may either settle out, be filtered through the pond bottom, or be taken up by the wetland plants that surround these ponds.
Pollution Control Devices
Additionally, stormwater runoff can be enhanced by retrofitting existing stormwater structures with devices that act as filters to stop trash, leaves, sediment, and debris from entering our water bodies.
For example, a curb inlet basket can be installed in existing stormwater inlets. One basket can collect over 200 pounds of leaves, sediment, and trash every year!
Storm drains and sewers are words often used interchangeably, but they are not the same thing. A storm drain usually is constructed as part of a curb to catch excess water runoff from roads to prevent flooding. The storm drain is part of a drainage system that carries that water, untreated, to a nearby source of water.
A sewer, on the other hand, carries sewage from homes and businesses that comes from kitchens, bathrooms, or washing machines. Some water in the sewage system might also come from rain that drains through manhole covers. The sewage carried through a sewer system does get treated at a treatment facility to limit water pollution as much as possible.
There are a few ways you can control stormwater runoff on your lawn. A professional landscaper trained in stormwater management can help you find the best methods of management for the layout and slope of your yard.
A few ways stormwater can be managed in a yard to prevent flooding that can damage gardens, homes, and more, include:
Most canals are maintained by the Central Broward Water Control District (CBWCD). To learn more, call 954-432-5110.

Domestic wastewater is wastewater originating from activities such as restroom usage, washing, bathing, food preparation, and laundry. Industrial wastewater is process wastewater originating from manufacturing, commercial businesses, mining, agricultural production and processing, and wastewater from cleanup of petroleum and chemical contaminated sites, to name a few. According to the Florida Department of Environmental Protection Agency (https://floridadep.gov/water/industrial-wastewater), all wastewater that is not defined as domestic wastewater is considered industrial wastewater. All industrial wastewater that discharges to a domestic wastewater or reclamation treatment facility, must be regulated under the Industrial Pretreatment Program.
No person, business, homeowner or entity, connected to the Town’s sever system, is allowed to introduce, or cause to be introduced, any pollutant or wastewater which causes pass through or interference to the treatment plant and or water bodies of State. A general list of the prohibition can be found in Town’s Sewer Ordinance (https://library.municode.com/fl/davie/codes/code_of_ordinances?nodeId=PTIICOOR_CH25UT_ARTVIIISEUS). Examples include (but are not limited to):•Flammable, explosive, corrosive, reactive or radioactive substances•Infectious or medical wastes•Toxic and noxious materials•Solids or viscous materials which could obstruct or harm operations in the sewer collections system and the treatment plants
Any business, including industrial, commercial, institutional or governmental, that discharges any wastewater other than domestic wastewater may be subject to the requirements of the Industrial Pretreatment Program. To determine if your business should be regulated under the Industrial Pretreatment Program, please call us at 954–327–3742 for further information.
If the Town or business determines that an industrial wastewater discharge permit is needed, such a permit will be issued by the Town after a pretreatment application is received and processed. Industrial discharge users may be required to install pretreatment facilities to treat their process waste prior to discharge to the Town’s sewer system in order to meet pretreatment standards. Permits will be specific based on waste classification, either a Categorical Industrial User (CIU) or Significant Industrial User (SIU), and amount of waste being discharged, to name a few. Permittees will be placed on a compliance schedule and must periodically sample and analyze their discharge to determine compliance, and report the results to the Town's Utilities Department. Permittees who fail to comply with pretreatment standards may be liable to enforcement actions, including monetary penalties and termination of sewer service.
Backflow is the undesirable reversal of flow of water, liquids, mixtures or substances into the public water distribution pipe system from any source or sources other than its intended source as result of a cross connection.
