Public Works > Stormwater
The Stormwater Division of the Public Works Department manages and maintains the City's stormwater collection and conveyance system. The natural drainage system consists of the Dogfish, Lemolo, Johnson and Bjorgen Creek basins, as well as several other basins that discharge directly to Liberty Bay. The collection and conveyance system consists of approximately 19 miles of pipes, 4 miles of open drainage ditches, 1,270 catch basins, and 51 discharge points.

Stormwater runoff rates are controlled by more than 40 detention facilities in numerous neighborhoods and at some commercial properties. These facilities include limited localized treatment for stormwater quality, but otherwise, stormwater is not treated. For more information about stormwater quality click here. Inquiries should be directed to Public Works, (360) 779-4078.

It's your doody!


Dogs in Kitsap County drop more than 11 tons of waste each day! That's raw sewage sitting in our yards and parks. The harmful organisms in the waste can survive for weeks in yards and streams, waiting for a human host. Landfills are designed to safely handle substances such as dog waste and cat litter.




Pick it up with the Mutt Mitt Program

Enhance the safety and enjoyment of neighborhood common areas, trails, and other open spaces by making pet waste cleanup easy and convenient for dog owners. Find out how to participate in this county-wide project here.
