Report a Discharge

When to make a report

  • When you notice unusual odors in or near the storm drain.
  • When you find dumped waste in or near the storm drain.
  • When the drainage system has unusually large flows during dry periods.
  • When you see someone illegally dumping anything into the storm drain.

Why it is important to report these occurrences

Materials that travel into the storm drain flow untreated to local creeks, streams and rivers. These natural resources are vital sources of drinking water and are used for recreation; therefore it is important to keep our waterways clean, safe and healthy.

Note: If you are reporting an emergency situation that could result in imminent or substantial danger to the health and safety of persons, call 911.
