The storm drains in the street outside your home flow directly to waterways, without any treatment. It is therefore very important that no one be allowed to dump waste of any kind onto the street surface, drainage pipes, and ditches, or into storm drains – they are only for rainwater. If you see
someone dumping anything onto street surfaces, into storm drains, or into any other device built to contain rainfall or runoff, please report it immediately by calling the Department of Engineering at 630-260-2065 or by completing the form below.
Fill in the information and the City of Wheaton will investigate all reports received and take any and all enforcement actions necessary to rectify by discharge.
Erosion and Sediment Complaints: observed excessive erosion and sedimentation from active construction sites.
Illicit Drainage Complaints: observed illegal dumping into the stormwater system and / or streams. Anything entering the stormwater system that is not stormwater is considered an illicit discharge.
Call 9-1-1 to report an emergency; do not use this form.
