Protecting Arvada's streams from illegal dumping is critical to maintaining a healthy environment. Accidental spills and illegal dumping should be addressed as soon as possible.
Here is a list of ways to handle spills or illegal dumping:
*Some foam or suds in the stream is natural, especially as snowmelt runoff occurs in the spring accumulating along shorelines and river banks, and in coves and eddies. Foam from silt or erosion is usually a dirty brown color amd smells like fish or earth. In contrast, foam from detergent will have a noticeable perfume smell. Natural foam is often seen in early morning and is usually gone by midday.
If you have specific questions about dumping, please submit a service request.
