Disposal of anything other than storm water in storm sewers is illegal. It is important to remember that municipal storm sewer systems are not set up to treat or process anything and exist solely to transport rain water to surrounding river, streams, and other bodies of water.
THINGS YOU CAN DO TO PROTECT OUR WATER QUALITY
- Never dump anything down storm drains
- Dispose of household waste properly
- Use fertilizer sparingly, sweep up any excess from driveways, sidewalks and roads
- Avoid pesticides
- Pick up after your pet
- Direct downspouts onto grassy areas away from paved surfaces
- Check vehicles for leaks
