South Euclid Codified Ordinance #1326.08 states:
"No soil, rock, debris or any other material shall be dumped or placed into a water resource or into such proximity that it may readily slough, slip, or erode into a water resource unless such dumping or placing has been authorized by the City, and where applicable, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency, for such purposes as, but not limited to, constructing bridges, culverts, and erosion control measures."
In conclusion, either City officials are unaware of the situation, or, they have authorized the dumping.Please click on the link below to read the entire text from the South Euclid Code of Ordinances:
