established a program called the Storm Drain Inlet  Marker Program which requires that all storm  drain inlets, similar to the one pictured below,  contain a marker that noƟfies residents that the  marked storm drain flows to the creek.  This is  important informaƟon because it is intended to  stop illicit discharge or dumping of pollutants such  as paints, varnishes, solvents, oil and other  automoƟve fluids, non‐hazardous liquid/solid  wastes, yard wastes and grass clippings, garbage,  pesƟcides, herbicides, ferƟlizers, any other  hazardous substances, sewage, animal wastes,  construcƟon materials and noxious or offensive  maƩer of any kind, into a marked storm drain inlet  that flows to the creek.    City representaƟves are marking storm drain inlets  that flow to the creeks and placing door hangers,  like the one pictured here, on homes in the area to  educate the public on the consequences of this  form of illegal dumping.
