The City of Deerfield Beach Stormwater Management program focuses on properly draining surface water to protect the environment. Our stormwater system includes residential swales, water retention ponds, underground pipes, canals, and lakes. By properly disposing of harmful materials and taking care of our properties, we can work together to protect our waterways.
Yard fertilizer runoff from residential areas is estimated to be responsible for one-third of the excess nitrogen polluting our waterways.
Use lawn and garden products sparingly.
