Report Polluters

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/chemical from entering the storm drain system.
