Discharges from storm sewers often include wastes and wastewater from non-storm water sources. Many of these sources are from illicit and/or inappropriate discharges and connections to the storm sewer. And many of these sources contribute pollutants to our waters that pollute the environment. So, it is important that these non-storm water sources be identified and eliminated.
The Parish of Caddo is planning and implementing the following practices:
Mapping the storm sewer system to allow for tracing discharges upstream
Development and updating the illicit discharge ordinance
