Running a Clean Ocean Business

In the City of Laguna Beach, water in streets, gutters and storm drains often flows directly to local creeks or the ocean without any treatment.  Wash water used in outdoor cleaning often carries soap, debris, degreasers and other harmful contaminants that can block or clog storm drains or end up polluting the ocean.  Releasing any kind of contaminant or polluting substance into a storm drain, OR any place where it will run off into a storm drain, is AGAINST THE LAW and subject to a citation and/or fine.  To make sure your business is a clean ocean business, follow these guidelines.
