Pollutants in Storm Drain Inlets
Dumping oil, grease, and other pollutants in storm drain inlets affects everyone in one of the following ways:
- Cleaning up the illegal dumping can cost the City (You!) as much as $850 per inlet.
- Oil, grease, and trash cause the drains to plug and result in local flooding of your street.
- Pollutants discharged from the drainage system contaminate your canals, lakes, and groundwater.
- Illegal dumpers will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law when caught. There is no “warning notice!”
