Citizen cooperation is vital for an effective stormwater program. Likewise, people on the streets are key to timely enforcement. If you suspect an emergency, always call 911. In a situation where you observe a discharge that you are uncertain about, but should probably be investigated, there are several points for reporting.
If you observe a non-hazardous discharge during normal business hours, please contact the Public Works Department at 714-990-7691 or send an email.
If you observe discharges into the storm drains during non-business hours, please call Brea dispatch at 714-990-7911.
As an alternate, the County of Orange also has a water pollution reporting hotline available 24 hours a day to report illegal dumping, illegal discharges into the storm drains, or pollution spills. Please call 877-89-SPILL to report such issues.
