STREAMS, RIVERS AND WATERWAYS
Starts with Local Watersheds
The Puget Sound region is a large watershed comprised of many different watersheds. A watershed is an area that drains into a body of water through a network of streams, rivers, storm drains and underground pipes. In a watershed, many different sources contribute to stormwater runoff pollution. The pollution starts locally — whether in Kirkland, Bremerton or Gig Harbor — and runs through in-city watersheds impairing many favorite bodies of water.
