Consumer Information

What we do on a daily basis affects our friends, neighbors and family.  There are some simple things we can do to improve the quality of life in San Diego County and the pages listed below offer some tips to make that possible

Sewers & Stormwater

  • What you put down the drains in your home can cause some serious problems.  Here's what you should and should not send to your Sewer System
  • Wastewater and sewage that drain from inside your house is treated and cleaned before it enters the ocean, but the storm drains in the street outside your home flow directly to the ocean without any treatment. Let us know if you see a problem where you live, work, shop or play



  • Report potholes or graffiti in the unincorporated areas of the County on our "Contacts" page
