Illicit Discharge Detection Program

This program focuses on illegal and illicit discharges into our stormwater systems on James Island.  These are things like a restaurant putting grease into the storm drain or ditch, or a home that has the washing machine discharging into the ditch.  These practices are not allowed, and cause pollution in our waterways.  The Town works with Charleston County and the City of Charleston to eliminate these pollution sources.  For more information, or to report a possible illicit discharge, contact the Public Works Department.
