An illegal discharge is any discharge or release into stormwater, the storm drains, receiving waters, or land that is not composed entirely of stormwater except conditionally allowed discharges described in the Port’s Stormwater Management and Discharge Control Ordinance, Article 10 – Ordinance No. 2815
Examples of illegal discharge include: irrigation runoff, air conditioning condensate, diesel fuel, trash, and oil.
Over-irrigation can cause illegal discharges and wastes water. For more drought information visit the San Diego Water Authority’s, California American Water or Sweetwater Authority’s websites:
