To save money. The average emergency response and ambulance transport costs $1,500. Insurance may cover a portion of this charge, but subscribers to BixbyCare will pay nothing after a claim is submitted to the health insurance provider.
For most people, their insurance will only partially cover ambulance costs after the deductible and co-insurance is met, which means the rest is your responsibility to pay. If you are unsure of your level of emergency ambulance coverage, contact your insurance provider. For members with health insurance, BixbyCare takes care of out-of-pocket expenses, so you don’t pay anything for emergency ambulance services.
For the City of Bixby residents who receive a Bixby Water bill, you are automatically enrolled in BixbyCare through your monthly water bill, it will show up as an EMS line item. If you live outside Bixby City limits but within Bixby Licensed Response Area and do not pay a Bixby City water bill you will need to submit an annual payment by check, cash, or credit card.
Yes, the City will submit claims to insurance providers. BixbyCare members who have health insurance will not pay any out-of-pocket expenses after insurance payments have been collected.

BixbyCare is available to anyone living outside City limits but within the Bixby Licensed Response Area. Those living within city limits and receiving a water bill will pay $7.50 per month. Those living outside City limits but within the Bixby Licensed Response Area will be able to enroll at $90 per year. To participate, visit the City of Bixby website to enroll. \

A private street is usually located in a residential area such as a condominium development or gated community in which a homeowners' association maintains the grounds, streets, as well as storm sewers. The city cannot make repairs to private streets because they are not located on public property. However, the city does maintain the water supply and sanitary sewer. Even though you reside within the city limits, unless your street meets engineering criteria, it may not be maintained by the city. If you are unsure whether your street is public or private, you may contact your homeowners association or call at 918-366-4430
The electric utility companies are responsible for replacing light bulbs on street lights.
Stormwater runoff is water from rain or snowmelt that cannot be absorbed by the soil and instead washes off roofs, driveways, sidewalks, and other surfaces that do not filter into the ground.
When stormwater flows over surfaces, it picks up and carries pollutants from those surfaces becoming polluted. Typical pollutants in stormwater runoff include oil, sediment, pesticides, fertilizers, yard waste, and pet waste.
No. Even though leaves and grass are natural and biodegradable, these organic materials consume oxygen when they decompose and remove dissolved oxygen from the water. Fish and other aquatic organisms require oxygen and will die without it.
Everyday activities we do around our homes, yards, and businesses impact the quality of our stormwater. Some examples include over fertilizing our yards or doing so before a significant rain event, not picking up pet waste, and use of pesticides. Cars leaking oil or fluids from vehicles, grass, leaves, and other yard debris are other forms of common stormwater pollutants.
Managing our stormwater helps to improve the quality and reduce the amount of polluted stormwater. Unlike the sanitary sewer water system, stormwater does not receive any treatment before it enters our waterways. Stormwater runoff then carries the pollutants directly to our streams and rivers adversely affecting wildlife, human health, and safety. Also, water that falls on hard surfaces and does not filter into the ground runs off to lower areas, with the excess potentially causing local flooding and erosion.
Create natural areas on your property to help reduce the quantity of stormwater runoff. When working in your yard or around your home, make sure you dispose of products correctly. Never dump or dispose of items into the storm drains, pick up after your pets, keep yard waste (grass clippings, leaves, etc.) out of the street and minimize the use of pesticides and fertilizers.
An illicit discharge is any discharge to the Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) that is not composed entirely of stormwater. These types of discharges may occur due to direct dumping of waste (paint, oils, grass clippings, and trash) into a storm drain or placement of waste so that it enters a storm drain system is also a form of illicit discharge.
No. Only sewage from your household drains are transported to the sanitary sewer system. Stormwater flows through the storm sewer system, and ditches. It empties into our streams, ponds, and creeks. It would be too expensive to treat stormwater the same as we treat sanitary sewage. The amount of sewage generated from our homes and businesses every day is small compared to the amount of stormwater runoff we receive during a rain event.
An impervious surface area is any surface that does not readily absorb water and blocks the natural infiltration of water into the soil. Common examples of this include roofs, driveways, parking areas, sidewalks, patios, decks, tennis courts, concrete or asphalt streets, crushed stone, and gravel surfaces.
As a resident of the City of Bixby, here are a few ways you can help keep our water resources clean and beautiful.

Water is referred to as hard or soft because of the presence of minerals in the water. In eastern Oklahoma, much of the water used for public water supply comes from lakes (surface water). This water has flowed over the ground in streams or rivers until it reaches a lake where it is stored and eventually consumed. Another type of water - groundwater-flows through soil and permeable rock before it trickles out into a stream and eventually a lake. As water moves, it picks up minerals from the rocks and soil. Two of these minerals, calcium and magnesium, accumulate and create the “hardness” rating of your water. This rating is measured in Parts Per Million (ppm) or Grains Per Gallon (gpg). The more minerals present in the water, the “harder” it is. Bixby’s water is supplied by the City of Tulsa A. B. Jewell Water Treatment Plant which originates at Lake Oologah. The average hardness for A. B. Jewell runs 8.2 grains per gallon (gpg) or 140 parts per million (ppm) and is considered “HARD”. Water hardness is not a safety issue. Water is safe to drink no matter what the hardness rating is.
