We All Live Downstream

Roy City would like to offer a friendly reminder that gutters and storm drains are for runoff waters only (sprinklers, rainwater, etc.). When you are mowing your lawns, please sweep up or use a blower to blow grass clippings and fertilizers that get onto the driveways, sidewalks, and gutters or streets, and put them back onto your own lawn. Grass clippings can plug the storm drains and cause flooding; they also decompose in our streams and ponds and cause unnaturally high levels of nutrients that can harm aquatic wildlife.

The Roy City storm water system runs through Meadow Creek Pond. This water is vital to the pond and must be kept clean. Please properly dispose of grass clippings, pet waste, paint fertilizers, tree leaves, seeds, etc., properly and help keep our city streets, as well as streams and rivers, clean.

Please contact the Roy City Public Works Department to report violations at 801-774-1090. If it is after hours, please call Weber Dispatch at 801-629-8221. Our current storm water ordinance is on our website at www.royutah.org.
