Report Illegal Concrete Washout at Construction Sites

Concrete trucks are required to use a designated washout area which will be properly signed and protected by an impermeable barrier. Pollution from concrete washouts can contaminate surface and ground water resources. Read this article to learn more about the concrete washout requirements at construction sites.
