Report-A-Polluter — City of Goshen

The City of Goshen Stormwater Department is responsible for identifying and eliminating illicit sources of pollution within our community. The Stormwater Department needs the help of each citizen to identify pollutant sources. Storm inlets, pipes, and ditches are meant to carry "clean" stormwater away from our roadways to permit safe passenger travel, but this infrastructure also provides an easy path for pollution to reach our valuable waterways. Discharging anything other than clean water on to the ground where it can enter a storm sewer or discharge directly into storm sewer poses an environmental concern and needs to be reported. Common sources of pollution to storm sewers include contaminated runoff from construction sites, concrete truck washouts, dumping of paint and other household wastes, draining used oil, grass clippings, and RV holding tank, or port-a-john releases. 

To report a stormwater pollution concern to the City of Goshen, please contact the Stormwater Department at 574-534-2201, click here, click on the Report an Issue button at the top of this page and fill out the Stormwater form, or email Jason Kauffman, stormwater coordinator for the City of Goshen.

Thank you very much for your help in keeping our community clean.
