Storm Water

Storm drains flow directly to the ocean, rivers, and lakes without any treatment. Thus, it is important that no one be allowed to dump waste of any kind onto street surfaces, drainage pipes and ditches, or into storm drains. Storm drains are only for rain water.

If you see someone dumping anything onto street surfaces, into storm drains, or into any other device built to contain rainfall or runoff on campus, please report it immediately by calling the Environmental Health and Safety at 619-594-6778 or (after hours) Public Safety 619-594-1991 with the time, location, and description of the activity.

San Diego State University partners with Think Blue. For more information about how you can protect our waterways, visit Think Blue — City of San Diego Official Website
