Public Education, Outreach and Involvement
Best Management Practices (BMPs) in this category are designed to educate the public about the ways storm water can impact our water quality, hazards associated with illegal discharges, and steps that Tyler’s citizens can take to reduce pollutants in our storm water runoff. These outreach activities will address a wide range of audiences including residents, visitors to our city, public service employees, local businesses, commercial and industrial facilities, and construction site personnel.

Tyler's Storm Water Management Program contains nine BMPs in the Public Education, Outreach and Involvement category including:
  • PE/PI-1 : Utility Bill Inserts
  • PE/PI-2 : Storm Water Brochures
  • PE/PI-3 : Storm Water Web Site
  • PE/PI-4 : Public Service Announcements
  • PE/PI-5 : School Book Covers
  • PE/PI-6 : Storm Drain Marking by City Staff
  • PE/PI-7 : Stream Cleanup Projects
  • PE/PI-8 : Facility Tours
  • PE/PI-9 : Adopt-a-Street, -Park or -Spot

Over the next 5 years, the City’s program will use a variety of print, web and television media to reach a broad audience with a range of topics. Some of our BMPs such as the Utility Bill Inserts and School Book Covers can only convey short topical messages to reinforce an idea or refer citizens to other available materials, such as brochures and this web site where they can find more detailed information. One of our BMPs, School Book Covers, was selected specifically for school aged children. All of our BMPs were developed to work together as an integrated Public Education, Outreach and Involvement program.
