Storm Water and Illicit Discharge
When water or wastewater overflows in the street, or anything else goes into the storm drain, it goes down the storm drains and it comes out the same. No treatment. No filter.
While LCMUA is NOT responsible for the storm drains in our municipalities, LCMUA is concerned with illicit discharge into the storm drain system as it directly impacts quality of the water supply. Help protect the environment, your health, and water supply by reporting illicit discharge to your local municipality. Find contact information for the municipalities here.
