Sioux City city council members got an earful about what's being dumped down people's drains and into the city's storm sewers.
Sioux City must meet certain guidelines from the state of Iowa and the EPA.
The city's environmental analyst says most of the pollution at construction sites is accidental. However, they're required to have weekly inspections and comply with permits.
He's urging everyone to think twice about what you put down the drain.
"We do have people dumping things down the drain, wither it's litter in their sink or faucet or whatever. We do have those incidents, but it's not something that is usual," said Derek Carmona, Environmental Analyst.
Carmona says the public needs to consider the outcome, so our waterways stay clean and safe.
