Illicit Discharge Violations

This violation type covers a wide variety of infractions of state water quality standards. Failure to properly install adequate erosion and sediment controls can result in the discharge of turbid waters from a development site into adjacent waterways, wetlands or other natural systems. Illicit discharges are the discharge of anything other than stormwater runoff into Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) facilities. NPDES Permit compliance requires the county to report illicit discharge violations in the annual report.
