Prevent Storm Water Pollution

By definition, an illicit discharge is an unlawful act of disposing, dumping, spilling, emitting or other discharge of any substance other than stormwater into the streets, gutters, ditches and ponds that make up our stormwater drainage system, or directly into streams or lakes themselves.  As a community member, you play a large part in identifying and reducing illicit discharges in our community. 


What can you do about illicit discharges?

If you see anyone discharging any material other than rainwater in roadside ditches or storm drains, please report it to the Public Works Supervisor at (651) 459-3730.  For potential hazardous materials and petroleum spills, call 9-1-1 first when there is a immediate threat to life or property
