It is advised to dispose of swimming pool water into the sewer system through a sewer cleanout, preferably, or other sewer drains using a flow restrictor.

Alternatively, swimming pool water may be disposed into the storm drains under City and NPDES regulations. For more information on disposing swimming pool water into the storm drain, please visit the County website. This method of disposal requires a 48 hour notification and a Chlorine Residual Inspection. For more information, please call the Public Works Department's Environmental Services Division at (714) 741-5375.
