Metro Water Services encourages residents to report stormwater pollution


Metro Water Services requests that citizens report any stormwater violations (i.e., incidences where pollutants or other unauthorized materials are poured into stormwater drains). Please see below for more information:
Under the Federal Clean Water Act, Metro Nashville is charged with enhancing and protecting the quality of Davidson County's waterbodies and streams, and improving stormwater discharges that flow directly from our storm sewers to waterways during rain events.

WE NEED YOUR HELP to identify and report any issues you might witness. Only clean stormwater should be allowed to be washed into our storm sewer systems and/or local streams! [This PDF has] examples of violations...

If you see an illicit discharge or a pollutant that might be washed into a storm sewer or stream during a future rain event, please contact the NPDES Program Office at (615) 880-2420 or (615) 313-PURE.

Thanks for not only helping Metro maintain permit compliance, but also helping to improve the water resources within your community. For more information on Metro’s Stormwater programs, please go to http://www.nashville.gov/stormwater/index.htm.
