Illicit discharges are defined as a storm drain that has measurable flow during dry weather containing pollutants and/or pathogens. A storm drain with measurable flow but containing no pollutants is simply considered a discharge.
Nasty stuff (those things that professionals call Illicit Discharges) can lead to pollutants reaching creeks, streams, rivers, lakes, and other bodies of water where we do our recreational activities or use it as drinking water. We are especially concerned about heavy metals (and we are not talking about the rock bands!), toxins, oil and grease, solvents, nutrients, pathogens, and bacteria.
