Reporting Environmental Concerns
Storm Water Discharge Reporting
The Township’s Illicit Discharge Elimination Plan has
identified storm outfalls to the Rouge River and tributaries.
Illicit discharges and connections are investigated as
identified though reported concerns and regular inspections.
An illicit discharge is any discharge of polluting material
into a storm sewer, river, stream or other waterway.
An illicit connection is an improper physical connection of
illicit discharges to the storm water drainage system.
Examples include: a floor drain that is connected to storm
drain rather than a sanitary sewer, a septic tank discharge
pipe that is connected to a storm drain or drains directly to
a waterway or an improper connection between a storm sewer and
The Township encourages citizens to report any suspicious
observations that may affect our waterways in negative ways.
