In order to protect the quality of storm water within Pleasant Grove City, the Council has adopted ordinances and the storm water managmenet plan (document link below). Residents can assist in keeping storm water clean by not disposing of waste materials in gutters (e.g. leaves and grass clipings), sweeping up sidewalks and gutters, washing cars on the lawn, and reporting those who pollute (illicit discharge) the City storm drain system. All curbs and roadway shoulders, along with curb collection boxes and the underground pipes are part of the City storm drain system. Keeping these clean helps keep our local streams, Utah Lake, the Jordan River, and the Great Salt Lake clean and useful for all.
