Storm Water Management

The City Engineer is responsible for managing the City's Storm Water Ordinance and to ensure compliance with the NPDES permit issued by the Regional Water Quality Control Board under the authority of the Environmental Protection Agency. This program includes eliminating the source of any illegal dumping or discharge of material or liquids which can end up on the City streets and then in the storm drain system and ultimately in the open ocean waters.

To report illegal dumping, contact the Los Angeles County's toll-free hotline - (888) CleanLA - (888) 253-2652. For more information visit
