The storm sewer system was designed to remove rainwater quickly for city streets to prevent flooding our yards and roadways. Anything that goes into a storm drain goes directly through a large pipe to the closest creek or stream. So keep yard waste, used motor oil, pet waste, litter, or any soap or chemical from entering the storm drain system.
We need your help! Please report anyone you spot putting anything which should not go into a storm drain by calling the Stormwater Pollution Hotline (336) 747-7480. In addition, please report any creek or stream that has an unusual smell or appearance!
