Illicit Discharges

It is unlawful to make illicit or hazardous discharges, either directly or indirectly to a public storm system. Please contact us for reporting any Illicit Discharges. City staff understands the need for confidentiality, so calls can be anonymous. Most stormwater runoff within the City of Burlington drains into Gages Slough, then is pumped into the Skagit River. It is important to eliminate pollution into our stormwater system, and preserve the quality of water in our streams and rivers.
