Stormwater Pollution Prevention for Automotive Repair and Food Service Establishments

The Department of Environmental Engineering encourages employees of restaurants and automotive repair establishments to conduct business in a manner that can prevent pollution from entering the storm sewer system. Stormwater runoff carries pollutants to storm drains that discharge to natural waterways without treatment, which may cause public health risks and degrade the environment.

What kinds of pollutants do automotive repair establishments generate?

What kinds of pollutants do food service establishments generate?

  • Motor oil
  • Fuel
  • Paint
  • Solvents
  • Detergents
  • Battery Acid
  • Antifreeze
  • Metals
  • Cooking Oil
  • Grease
  • Food Scraps
  • Mop Water
  • Detergents
  • Disinfectants
  • Degreasers
  • Trash

All of these pollutants can have an adverse impact on water quality in streams, lakes and rivers and degrade habitat for wildlife. The Department of Environmental Engineering has developed Stormwater Pollution Prevention and Spill Response Plans for automotive repair and food service establishments that describe simple ways to prevent pollutants from entering into storm sewers or waterways.
