It is a violation of State and Federal laws to discharge anything that is not a permissible substance into the storm sewer systems without a permit. The dumping of paint, motor oil, grease, lawn chemicals, trash and other materials into the storm drain system is strictly prohibited. When washed into storm sewers, these, and other foreign matter, can damage or kill plants, animals, and marine life and make humans ill. Debris can also cause storm drains to become blocked, causing them to overflow onto adjacent streets and properties.
