Prevent Wrongful Discharge to Storm Drains

Any substance discharged onto an impervious surface will almost always end up in the stormwater system, and ultimately our drinking water supply source.

Although some pollutant sources may seem trivial (like pet waste, decomposing grass clippings, and the over-use of fertilizer), the effects are significantly greater when multiplied by the entire township.

The link below offers information on how to prevent, detect, and report illicit discharges. Help keep our drinking water clean!


Clean up after your pet. Pet waste contains bacteria, parasites, and nutrients that contaminate our streams. Clean up after your pets. Bag your pet’s waste and throw it in the trash. Picture of dog in a field of grass, looking left. Picture of multi-colored pet waste bags in rolls.

One common discharge into storm drains is pet waste. Smithfield Township has approximately 3,734 households, about forty percent of which own a dog. The average dog poops twice a day, and each set of droppings contains about 3 billion fecal coliform bacteria. That works out to 8.9 trillion fecal coliform bacteria per day that could end up in a storm drain – and our local streams – if not picked up. Always bag your pet’s waste and throw it in the trash; it’s just the right thing to do!
