Storm drains are only for rain water (aka stormwater runoff). Dumping trash, pollutants and debris in the catch basins is illegal. If you spot something other than stormwater in the street or catch basins you may report the problem by contacting This email address is being protected from spambots.

Provide as much information as possible (address, business name, license number, date, time, etc.). The local municipality will reach out to address the issue.

It is illegal to knowingly dump or discharge pollutants into storm drain systems and local ordinances can impose significant penalties.
