Report Construction Runoff

Help the City of Jackson protect our watershed by reducing pollutants in stormwater!

How is construction runoff harmful?

Sediment runoff from active construction sites is one of the nation's leading water resource pollutants. Sediment and other pollutants from construction sites, such as cement, paint, fuel and oil, can cause physical, chemical and biological harm to our nation’s water. Polluted stormwater runoff from construction sites flows into the storm drain system and is discharged into our local rivers and streams.

That is why the City of Jackson requires construction sites to install and maintain erosion controls to keep as much sediment on the site as possible.

Monitor Construction Activities In Your Watershed

What to look for:

  • Muddy water flowing down/in street from construction site
