Storm water ponds are also a regulated water feature, although the regulations regarding storm water ponds are different from those that apply to wetlands. In the City of Hugo, storm water ponds are regulated through Chapter 46 – Nuisances of the City Code. Residents can do their part to protect storm water features by abiding by the following rules. Never fill or obstruct storm water ponds, swales and retention systems, as that will potentially keep the storm water pond from working as designed. Don’t dump excess oils and other chemicals from your home or yard waste, including grass clippings, into storm water drains or ponds. Also, be sure to clean up pet waste so nutrients and bacteria don’t enter storm water drains.
