What's Happening
Proper way to drain a home pool or spa - April is Stormwater awareness month. Don’t forget that together we keep our creeks, streams and rivers clean.

Drain pools and spas into the sanitary sewer/wastewater line whenever possible.
Drain only de-chlorinated water onto grassy areas and drain it slowly.
Never drain a pool or spa directly into street drains or drainage ditches.
It is a violation of the City of Pflugerville’s code of ordinances to drain chlorinated water into the storm sewer system. Tips for draining your pool
