Illicit Discharge Elimination

Storm Drain Inlet
Drains to Stream

It is NOT allowable or acceptable to dump paint, grease, plaster, gasoline, pet waste or other pollutants into the nearest curb inlet on your street. Under the Phase II program this is described as Illicit Discharge. It is a violation of the Clean Water Act, as well as city ordinances, and fines can be levied against violators by both the state DEQ and the city. The city is required by our Phase II permit to operate an Illicit Discharge Detection and Elimination Program, which includes receiving and investigating complaints, and annual reporting to DEQ of complaints received and actions taken by the city. If you observe someone dumping -pollutants into a storm drain, call this number:
