We Offer “No Dumping” Sign Painting!

Rachel Williams - Tuesday, February 16, 2016

What's worse than neglecting to paint your property and leaving it exposed to water damage, wood rot and more? According to the City of San Diego... stormwater and illegal dumping violations.

There are over 25,000 reports of illegal dumping, littering, scavenging and waste-related violations in the city every year. 


 

Only YOU Can Prevent Stormwater Pollution

Some of the most common examples of stormwater violations can occur when companies are hired to perform routine maintenance tasks. A few popular examples of these violations include:

  • Lack of management protocols in response to outdoor spills.
  • Discharged wastewater from HVAC and other equipment maintenance.
  • Sediment flow from unpaved facilities.
  • Discharged wastewater that flows into drains after carpet cleaning, pressure washing and surface cleaning.
  • Improper material management practices (specifically, when dealing with the storage of hazardous waste materials).
  • Stone-cutting slurry that isn't properly contained.
  • Spilled automotive fluid or improper storage of automotive parts that may eventually leak and create pollution.
If your facility is like many in the San Diego area, you deal with many of the above situations on a monthly basis. While it's impossible to plan a reaction to each and every unique situation that may occur, setting up general protocols for your team is the first step in managing stormwater pollution. 

 

What's Next? Steps to Prevention

Now you know where common stormwater violations may take place, but how can you prevent them? Hiring a contractor to paint "No Dumping: Drains to Ocean" signs is just one of the ways to create awareness. The property owner in areas where waste violations like illegal dumping of trash occurs is often responsible for the clean-up. (In these cases, adding signage is certainly an incentive!)
