Stormwater Management Program
CH2OOSE to keep our water clean!
When it rains, stormwater washes over the ground, picking up a variety of pollutants, such as oil, pesticides, metals, and soil. To prevent flooding and safety issues, stormwater travels through the City's storm drain system and is discharged untreated into nearby lakes, streams, and rivers - the ultimate source of our drinking water.
The Stormwater Management Program is the City of Wentzville's ongoing commitment to meet state and federal laws and help improve our community's water quality. Do your part to help keep Wentzville's waterways healthy for people, fish, and wildlife. And remember...only rain should go down storm drains.
Watermark Wentzville - Stream Naming Contest
There were 54 entries in the contest last summer to leave their mark in Wentzville by naming a stream. A juding committee selected ten winning names to submit to the MO Board on Geographic Names for approval and recommendation to the U.S. Board on Geographic Names for final approval. Selected names will appear in federal and city maps and publications and be recognized by various media outlets. Learn about the contest.
