IDDE - Illicit Discharge Detection and Elimination

Providing MS4 operators, employees, and communities with an overview of effective Illicit Discharge Detection and Elimination is the focus of these programs. Understanding the regulations and hazards illicit discharges pose to storm drain systems and urban watersheds is essential in finding, fixing, and preventing them.

IDDE - Illicit Discharge Detection & Elimination

"A Grate Concern"

Municipal separate storm sewer system (MS4) operators are required to train employees and contractors on control measures for stormwater pollution prevention. One such control measure is illicit discharge detection and elimination (IDDE). This kit is designed to train government employees and contractors on IDDE. The video focuses on the hazards of illicit discharges and shows employees how to spot them. (14 minutes)

IDDE - "Public Outreach & Education"

One of the requirements for permitted municipal separate storm sewer systems (MS4s) is to reach out to the general public and inform them about stormwater pollution prevention. One area where many public outreach programs focus is on illicit discharge detection and elimination (IDDE). The public needs to know what an illicit discharge is, not to discharge any non-stormwater into the MS4, how to spot evidence of past illicit discharges and what to do if they spot such evidence. There are five videos of varying run-times: from 30 seconds to 10-1/2 minutes. Program package includes both English and Spanish narration.
