Keeping Stormwater Clean

drain stencilingWe all need to do our part to protect and improve the quality of water in our local creeks, lake and wetlands. Rainwater that runs off of our yards and streets flows into storm drains and directly into the nearest body of water without treatment.

Through simple actions in our daily lives, we can help keep pollutants out of stormwater and keep our local waterways clean and healthy.

What You Can Do

Car Washing - Use a commercial car wash to keep pollution out of our streams.

Pet Waste - Pick up your pet’s waste, bag it and place it in the trash.

Yard Care - Grow a beautiful lawn and garden while protecting your family’s health and the environment.

Vehicle Maintenance - Safely maintain your car and fix vehicle leaks.

School Programs – Learn about the importance of water quality and watershed health through fun and exciting field trips and classroom activities that are available to Kirkland’s schools.

Volunteer - Join a stream restoration project or mark storm drains in your neighborhood.

What the City Does

Private Stormwater Maintenance Program- The City of Kirkland works with local property owners to ensure that all stormwater systems receive periodic inspection and maintenance.
