Who is Clean Water Kitsap?
We are a unique nationally recognized multi-agency partnership created to reduce flooding, prevent pollution and restore fish habitat through stormwater management activities. In 2014, after 20 years, the program name and logo was changed to Clean Water Kitsap in order to make more clear the program purpose and benefits.
We are managed by Kitsap County Public Works and fund certain partner programs within these agencies – Kitsap Public Health District, Kitsap Conservation District, Kitsap Public Utility District, and Washington State University Kitsap Extension.
We encourage you to explore this website and our projects, as well as ways you can join us in protecting Puget Sound and enhancing Kitsap natural resources.
