Keeping our “lights” on when others are off — Irving Flood Control District 3

When summer storms charge into Valley Ranch and the community's electric power is challenged, we're ready to push back. Read how we maintain readiness, even in the worst of storms. https://www.ifcd3.org/waterways-1/2020/7/28/keeping-our-lights-on-when-others-are-off

Keeping our “lights” on when others are off Summer officially began June 20, as charted by the summer solstice.

If you're looking a summer project with the kids, look into local trash cleanup. It helps the community and greatly helps IFCD 3. When it rains, trash that isn't collected ends up in our canals and hurts our pump system. Together we can keep our community clean!

Safely Keeping our Ducks in a Row — Irving Flood Control District 3

Code Enforcement: Getting The Trash Out - Irving, TX

Being the person who enforces the rules of our city might not be the most admired job, but it is vitally and critically important to how our city functions. Here is a great reminder from our code enforcement on trash. These rules help the trash end up where it’s supposed to, not blowing around our neighborhoods and in our waterways.

We are so thankful for the volunteers each year that help Keep Irving Beautiful through cleanup events like the annual Trash Bash. Last year nearly 500 volunteers collected 1,100 lbs. of trash and recyclables! That helps keep a lot of that trash from our canal and waterways, which helps IFCD 3! Check out the video below!
