Here you'll find information relating to stormwater issues for the City of Anna Maria.

Stormwater runoff can carry pollutants, pesticides and excess fertilizers into bays, rivers, lakes and groundwater. Remember that what goes in your storm drain can find its way into our water sources. Follow these tips to help reduce stormwater runoff from your yard:

  • Direct downspouts and gutters onto your lawn and plant beds, or into rain barrels, cisterns or containment areas.

  • Use mulch, bricks, gravel or other porous surfaces for walkways, patios and driveways.

  • Sweep grass clippings, fertilizer and soil onto the lawn so they don’t get washed into storm drains.

  • Clean up oil spills and leaks on the driveway. Use cat litter to absorb oil.

  • Pick up pet waste to help reduce bacterial and nutrient pollution.

  • Remove trash from street gutters before it gets washed into storm drains.

  • Use swales (low areas) to hold and filter water.
