Only clean water is allowed to flow freely into a storm drain. Wash waters, sewage, automotive fluids, construction materials, paint, trash, sediment, and food wastes are all prohibited from flowing into a storm drain. Illegal dumping is punishable by up to $10,000 and up to six months in jail. Reporting illegal dumping and discharges helps keep our local waterways pristine for all of us to enjoy.
When to make a report
- When you see someone illegally dumping anything into the storm drain, waterways or on land.
- When you notice unusual odors on or near the storm drain.
- When you find dumped waste on or near the storm drain.
- When the drainage system has unusually large flows during dry periods.
