Types of Illegal Discharges
Illegal discharges include the following, when connected to the sanitary sewer:
- Roof leaders
- Sump pumps
- Open Cleanouts / floor drains
- Other miscellaneous drains (except sinks, toilets, other utilities meant to discharge to the sanitary sewer)
In addition, flexible sump pump discharge piping is not acceptable, given the ease with which it may be moved and connected inappropriately.
Acceptable methods for handling stormwater or other drainage you may need to address on your property are shown in the following downloadable documents:
