It is illegal in the city of Grand Prairie to dump any type of debris into a canal, stream, river or drainage ditch. This debris can become entangled in culverts and shallow streambeds, canals or drainage ditches and impede drainage causing the flow of water to back up. Citizens of Grand Prairie should also keep drainage ditches on their property free of debris, foliage and vegetation that would impede the flow of water.

Debris dumping should be reported to the city of Grand Prairie's Public Works Department at 972-237-8154.
