The storm drains in the street outside your home flow directly to waterways without any treatment. It is therefore very important that no one be allowed to dump waste of any kind onto the street surfaces, drainage pipes, and ditches, or into storm drains - they are only for rainwater. If you see someone dumping anything onto street surfaces, into storm drains, or into any other device built to contain rainfall or runoff, please report it immediately by calling the Department of Public Works at (779)348-7175.
Erosion and Sedimentation Complaints: Pertains to observed excessive erosion and sedimentation from active construction sites.
