Answer:

Debris or waste dumped down a storm sewer inlet can cause water pollution. Storm sewers empty directly into lakes, streams and rivers, so anything that goes into a storm drain will end up in a water body without any sort of water quality treatment. Also, stormwater runoff from sites where debris is dumped can carry pollutants into the storm sewer system. Fort Wayne relies on citizens to report illegal dumping so that it can be cleaned up and water quality can be protected.
