Everything that flows down the street and enters the storm drain system eventually empties into the Santa Ana River without being cleaned at treatment plants. Anything that flows through the system, besides rainwater, is called stormwater pollution. This runoff is the largest source of pollution in our nation's waterways.
The Stormwater Program works to reduce the amount of pollution that empties into local waterways. Usually, stormwater pollution is caused by people doing little things that add up to a bigger problem.
Stormwater information can be found in Chapter 23-Article IX of the City of Fontana Municipal Code.
If you see someone dumping materials in the street or storm drain system, call the City of Fontana Police Department at (909) 350-7700.
