Non-sewage Spill

 

A non-sewage spill can be indicated by any unusual odors or unnatural discoloration of the water, such as oil spills, chemicals or hazardous waste.

 

What to do:

  • Take pictures to document evidence if possible
  • Without trespassing try to determine if there is any nearby discharges, pesticide applications, or pollutant leaks.
  • Look for any accidental or intentional dumping of pollutants.
  • Observe if recent heavy rain events may be responsible for transporting pollutants into the waterbody.
  • Do not trespass!
