Contractors reported for dumping concrete slurry to gutter

Dumping of concrete slurry or washout to the gutter is illegal in Madison.  It's highly alkaline, and may cause a fish  kill, if it washes to a nearby waterway.

Enforcement is by the Madison-Dane County Board of Health, which responds immediately to complaints.  They refer violations to the City Attorney--photos are enough to secure a conviction.
