Roadside dumps are a form of illegal dumping wherein wastes are disposed of in an unauthorized area, typically quiet areas that afford easy access by vehicles. This publication addresses the complex issue of water quality as it is affected by solid wastes that have been mismanaged. Topics include how to evaluate and characterize roadside dumps, water testing, ways to identify if a dump might be adversely affecting a local watershed or drinking water supply, and how to determine ownership and cleanup procedures.
