How do these illegal discharges get to the creeks and ponds?
All water that drains off of streets, parking lots, driveways, and sidewalks ends up in creeks, rivers, and lakes. The water collects the harmful pollutants and carries them to creeks and lakes. You've probably seen openings alongside streets; these are called inlets. It is important to remember that all rain waters ultimately enter the creeks and lakes.
