Please report any clogged storm drain inlets, spills or dumping that could enter the storm drain system, and faded or missing storm drain labels to the Engineering Division of Public Works at (707) 838-1006 or email during regular business hours, Monday to Thursday, 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. For calls outside of business hours, please call our 24-hour phone line at (707) 838-1000.
