Illicit Discharge, Illegal Connection or Illegal Dumping

Federal, State and County laws and/or ordinances currently prohibit the discharge of certain non-stormwaters to the storm drain system.  The purpose of these regulations is to protect the quality of our surface water resources by minimizing contamination associated with urban activities.  Prohibited discharges include industrial process water, sanitary sewer flows, dumping of liquid waste, stormwater pollution and other non-storm flows.
