Protecting Our Lakes and Rivers
From Storm Water Pollution
The stormwater drainage system collects rain water off hard surfaces such as pavement and roof-tops. After entering the storm drain, water is routed to the nearest lake, pond or river.
Anything that enters the drainage system besides rainfall is considered an illicit discharge and is a violation of Fruitland Park and Lake County's Illicit Discharge Ordinances.
These discharges include grease, oils and detergents. They have the potential to kill fish and restrict recreational activities such as swimming and fishing.
