Report Lake and Stormwater Pollution


The City of Orlando’s storm drains empty directly into more than 100 lakes. When it rains, pollution left on our City streets is carried to storm drains and directly to our lakes. The discharge of polluting matter in natural waters is prohibited and can result in fines up to $1,000 per incident, per day. View the City Ordinance here.

Polluting Matter:

  • Chemicals
  • Paints
  • Soaps (even biodegradable)
  • Antifreeze & automotive products
  • Pet waste
  • Silt or soil
  • Degreasers & solvents
  • Lawn Clippings
  • Leaves & branches
  • Pesticides & herbicides
  • Fertilizers
  • Petroleum products (oil, grease, gasoline)


You can prevent pollution and report pollution.
