Stormwater Phase II

Help Us Protect Our Rivers & Streams

Many of the storm sewers in Tipp City drain directly into our creeks and the Great Miami River. Storms sewers in Tipp City do not go to or drain to the City’s wastewater treatment facility. Therefore, it is important to prevent the introduction of materials into these drains which could cause problems in the receiving streams or waterways. Examples of prohibited discharges to storm drains and streams:

  • Waste oils and grease
  • Paints and solvents, including but not limited to products like thinners
  • Solids of any kind, including grass clippings and yard debris.
  • Excavation areas with no erosion control measures placed
