Residents can help report violations or problems they notice in their local streams on city streets before more damage and pollution occurs. You may be the first to recognize illicit discharges. These typically are any other flows other than rainwater being directed into storm sewers or out of pipes into streams. Dry weather flows defined as flows from stormwater outfall pipes after a 48-hour period without rain, should also be reported to your municipality for further investigation.
