A spill differs from an illicit discharge in that it is an unintentional release of something other than stormwater and related to a singular event.

We encourage all spills to be reported so that we can properly clean and follow up to ensure that no illicit discharge has occurred that needs to be addressed so that we can prevent further harm from being done.
