Stormwater management for Southwest Washington

We get a lot of rain in the Pacific Northwest. The stormwater flows off roofs, streets, and parking lots. It picks up sediment, pet waste, motor oil, fertilizers and a host of other pollutants which are carried to nearby streams.

Local government and private property owners are responsible for managing stormwater runoff. If you have stormwater facilities in your housing development you need to find out how to inspect and maintain them.

What you can do:
Identify your stormwater facility
Talk to neighbors
Develop a maintenance plan
