Protect Natural Floodplain Areas

The City of Benbrook is a beautiful place to live. The undisturbed creeks and riparian areas provide a wide range of benefits to human and natural systems. They provide flood storage and conveyance, reduce flood velocities and flood peaks. Water quality is improved through the wetland's ability to filter nutrients and impurities from runoff and process organic wastes. The local creeks and wetlands provide habitat for fish and wildlife. The floodplains are an important asset. They provide open space, aesthetic pleasure, and areas for active and passive uses.

The City offers residents convenient ways to eliminate junk, litter, debris, tree trimmings and brush left in yards, which clog storm drains and block channels and natural waterways. Properly removing these items helps prevent over bank flooding that could otherwise occur in low-lying areas and along waterways. City services include garbage and recycling collection, brush pickup, eWaste collection, paper shredding and household hazardous waste collection days.
