Residents are reminded that certain solid waste items do not belong in the sewer system. Many materials, flushed or poured down the drain can become stuck in sewer lift stations, potentially causing sewer back-ups in homes. Disposable does not mean Flushable. Items claiming to be biodegradable do not necessarily break down well enough to be put into the sewer system.
Cloth-like materials such as shop towels, kitchen and bathroom wipes can plug up the sewer system. Product packaging clearly indicates disposal into a trashcan. If it doesn't dissolve immediately in a bowl, it should not be placed into the sewer. The exception, of course, is toilet paper.
Grease is also a major problem for the sewer system. It will coat the walls of the sewer pipe and eventually cause a clog and possible sewer back-up. Instead, place grease in a container, let it solidify, and throw it into the trash.
Common items that should not be flushed into the sewer system:
The City of Victoria has concluded the Emergency Outdoor Watering Ban.
The City of Victoria has an ordinance restricting water usage, effective annually from May 1 to September 30.

Compliance with this ordinance is mandatory. Failure to comply may result in a fine. Special permit consideration will be given for those property owners with new seed or sod.

Parking on the street is prohibited from 11 pm-6 am after two inches of snow falls or until the street is plowed curb to curb.
The public works department tries to follow the following schedule when plowing snow in the city; weather conditions may delay our progress towards meeting these goals.
View the city's snow plowing route map.
Residents are responsible for plowing sidewalks in front or on the side of their property within 24 hours of snowfall.
Mailboxes should be set back at least three feet from the curb to avoid being in the direct line of plowed snow. It is the homeowner's responsibility to keep the snow clear around their mailbox and to keep their mailbox in good repair so the weight of the snow from the plows will not knock the box over. See the U.S. Postmaster guidelines for securing installing a mailbox.
No. Drivers should stay well back when following any snow plow. These trucks will be putting salt and sand on the roads. This distance is also for your own safety, because snow plows generally go slower than the posted speeds.
