Stormwater runoff is rain or melted snow that flows over driveways, parking lots, roads, sidewalks, streets, and roofs or any surface that cannot absorb water. As water travels over these surfaces, it picks up dirt, oil, fertilizers, pet waste and other pollutants. The City of Oak Grove has two employees which maintain the city owned drainage areas. Drainage areas located on personal property are not the responsibility of the city to maintain. Residents are responsible for the maintenance of these drainage areas by making sure the drainage ditch is clear and free of debris so the water can easily flow to its designated location.
