Drainage System & Illegal Dumping

Keep the drainage systems clean.  Do not dump or discard anything into the ditches, streams, ponds or drainage structures.  Debris contributes to blockages within the drainage system and can cause unintended flooding.  Remember, only rain down the drain.

Illicit dumping of debris in the drainage system can be reported to the Customer Service Center at 727.847.2411, 352.523.2411 or 813.996.2411.
