Types of Illegal Discharges

Illegal discharges include the following, when connected to the sanitary sewer:

  • Open Cleanouts / floor drains
  • Other miscellaneous drains (except sinks, toilets, other utilities meant to discharge to the sanitary sewer)
  • Roof leaders
  • Sump pumps

In addition, flexible sump pump discharge piping is not acceptable, given the ease with which it may be moved and connected inappropriately.
