Public Involvement


Why is Public Participation and Involvement important here in White House?

The City of White House believes that the public can provide valuable input and assistance to our MS4 municipal stormwater management program, and we want to provide the public with expanding opportunities to play an active role in both the development and implementation of our local stormwater program. An active and involved community is crucial to the success of a stormwater management program because it allows for:

  • Broader Public Support
  • Shorter Implementation Schedules
  • A Broader Base of Expertise and Economic Benefits
  • A Conduit to Other Programs
  • Volunteer Opportunities

The City is establishing foundational opportunities for public involvement.  With the exceptional leadership within our City, we hope to see citizens taking the initiative to work with our Stormwater Coordinator to increase the events and opportunities that we offer in our great City. The list below reveals programs that have recently been started as part of our newly developing MS4 program.  Please check back to periodically to see the growing list of opportunities for you to volunteer and keep our water sources clean.

Adopt-A-Creek Program

Volunteer groups - such as schools, clubs or community organizations - are encouraged to "adopt a creek". With the aid of city staff, who can provide maps and technical information, volunteers can participate in clean up projects or environmental field trips that can help ensure the environmental well being of our local waters. For more information send an e-mail the Stormwater Coordinator or call 615-672-4350.

Adopt-A-Basin Program

Volunteer groups - such as schools, clubs or community organizations - are encouraged to "adopt a basin". With the aid of city staff, who can provide maps and technical information, volunteers can participate in inspection and reporting for catch basins, open ditches and other drainage structures within your neighborhood at specific times that can help pass information along about the current situation with our local watersheds. For more information send an e-mail the Stormwater Coordinator or call 615-672-4350.
