Normally, the city DOES NOT dump the contents of a storm drain into the street. We did this on this trip only to demonstrate the amount of debris and trash in the storm drain. The Department of Public Utilities' Stormwater Division marked each clean drain with a marker that says "No Dumping. Goes to the River" to remind residents that only rain goes down the drain.
After this video was shot, the debris was sorted, bagged, weighed and removed, and the street was hosed clean. All the recyclable items were taken to a recycling center. Only rain should go down the drain!
