Illicit Discharge Detection and Elimination

MRP Provision C.5 requires Permittees to implement an illicit discharge control program that includes an active surveillance component, a centralized complaint collection component, and a follow-up component to target illicit discharge and non-stormwater sources. The provision identifies specific elements of the program including follow up and enforcement consistent with local Enforcement Response Plans, a central contact point for complaints and spill reporting, and spill and discharge complaint tracking system.

Co-permitees implement the Permit requirements by responding to illicit discharges and illegal dumping incidents, conducting proactive investigations and initiating enforcement actions against responsible parties. For information on how to report an illicit discharge go here.
