In the City of Grayson, the Gwinnett County Department of Water Resources regularly responds to complaints of citizens or businesses dumping or discharging waste products into our streams via our storm drainage system. Common pollutants include litter, oil, detergents, grass clippings, leaves, fertilizer, cigarette butts, paint, concrete, sewage and animal waste. Each of these pollutants has an adverse effect on our waterways. So, the next time you see a storm drain, spare a moment and remember that our creeks, streams and rivers begin right there.
You can report illicit discharges to our waterways, storm drains, and drainage ditches by calling the Gwinnett County Department of Water Resources at 678.376.7000. Alternatively, you can file a report online at www.gwinnetth2o.com by clicking on "Stormwater Management" on the left navigation pane, then choosing "Citizen Service Request."
