Report Stormwater Pollution

Only rain water is allowed in a storm drain. Our Public Works Department staff are dedicated to stopping illegal stormwater discharge.

If you see anyone dumping or pouring wash-waters, sewage, automotive fluids, construction materials, paint, sediment and/or silt,  food wastes or pet wastes into a storm drain, contact us. Reporting incidents of water pollution problems such as illegal dumping or discharges help keep our local creeks and the Pacific Ocean clean.

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
