Stormwater Fact of the Month from Environmental Health and Safety


IllicitDischargeIllicit Discharge Detection and Elimination

Illicit discharges are generally any discharges into a storm drain system that are not composed entirely of stormwater.

Report any and all illicit discharges on campus to the Physical Plant (304) 696-6680. This includes dumping oil, wastewater, nutrients, and other liquids into sewer drains and waterways.


Pollution Prevention & Good Housekeeping                               

Make sure all trash (wrappers, cigarette butts, etc.) are disposed of in the proper containers.


If you notice something other than water going into a storm drain, especially near dumpsters and generators, contact the Physical Plant Office immediately.
