Report Illegal Dumping
Illegal dumping of trash, paint products, motor oil and other chemicals into storm drains is against the law!
Everything dropped, tossed, spilled or discarded onto streets

Oil spills happen when people make mistakes or are careless
and cause an oil tanker to leak oil into the ocean and this is what kills the fishes and all the other sea animals. The BP Oil Spill was very damaging to the Gulf Coast. In 2010, BP sent out two robotic vehicles to monitor water pollutants. Over 200 million gallons of oil leaked into the sea before the well was sealed. Many fishermen, markets and restaurants along the Gulf Coast were severely affected by the oil leak.
