Erosion Protection and Sediment Control

Stormwater regulations for construction and post construction became effective August 1, 2008.

Illicit Discharge Detection and Elimination

What is “illicit discharge”? Federal Regulations define an illicit discharge as “any discharge to a storm water sewer system that is not composed entirely of storm water”. By County Ordinance (8-13), illicit discharge is illegal and punishable by fines up to $4,000.00. To report an illicit discharge call 502-921-2970 Monday-Friday or 502-817-2223 all other times.
