Residents and others also are encouraged by the campaign to report illegal dumping. Violators can be fined up to $1,000 for each occurrence, such as pouring chemicals into a catch basin or storm drain or dumping old tires on the side of a road. Currently there are three themes to the Only Rain Down the Storm Drain campaign.
Free Rain Barrel Program
The Summer Rain Barrel Program is designed to provide free rain barrels for residents within the service areas for both Cleveland Water (CWD) and the Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District (NEORSD). The Rain Barrel Program is an effort to reduce stormwater runoff, educate residents about the effects of runoff and stormwater management best practices and to help residents save money.
