Parking Lots and Pavement
Rain and snow melt flows from paved surfaces into the storm drain and directly into our streams. The runoff water picks up any pollution on its way. It is important to regularly sweep parking lots and driveways to minimize the amount of pollution washing into Bountiful’s streams. Keeping your driveway or parking lot clean is appreciated!
Household Hazardous Waste Disposal
Bountiful City offers its residents a convenient way to dispose of household hazardous waste (HHW) which includes:
- paint, aerosol cans, varnish, solvents, cleaner
- used oil, transmission fluid, antifreeze, fuel
- batteries, fluorescent lamps, propane cylinders, pesticides
- e-waste (i.e. monitors, computers, electronics)
- smoke detectors, thermostats, fire extinguishers
The City sponsors an annual HHW drop-off day, typically in October. A flyer is mailed with the utility bills/statements to announce the event.
Another option is to dispose of the HHW with the Wasatch Integrated Waste Management District. See their website for more information.

Flood Hazard Maps and Related Information
The US Congress has mandated all federally insured lenders to require flood insurance on properties that are located in “Special Flood Hazard Areas” which are those areas determined to have a 1% or greater chance of flooding in any given year. The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) issues maps known as Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRM), to help determine the flood risks for real property. FIRMs can be viewed over the internet using FEMA’s Map Service Center: https://msc.fema.gov/portal The Bountiful City Engineering Department can assist inquirers about flood insurance and flood information for specific properties as follows: the flood zone, whether property is in a “floodway”, flood depth (where information is available), flood-related hazards, natural floodplain functions, and flood protection measures. Copies of FEMA Elevation Certificates are available for some of the properties. A brochure about Utah floods is available to anyone interested.
Those having questions about flood hazards or storm water cleanliness should contact the Engineering Department at City Hall by calling 801.298.6125.
