Protect Your Sewer Pipes

To help protect your sewer pipes and keep them working properly, following these easy tips:

  • Only flush toilet paper. Do not flush trash. Even items labeled “flushable” can build up in the sewer system and cause overflow.

  • Dispose of grease in the garbage to reduce the risk of clogged sewer pipes. When grease is washed down the drain including a garbage disposal, it sticks to the inside of sewer pipes both on your property and in the streets. Over time, it builds up and can block the entire pipe.

Surface Water Utility

The Surface Water Utility operates and maintains 286 miles of storm pipe, 17,034 catch basins and structures, and 435 flow control and water quality treatment facilities.

When rainwater flows on the ground, it may pick up and carry pollutants into storm drains. Stormwater runoff flows to streams and lakes and eventually reaches Puget Sound.

Help keep our lakes, rivers and Puget Sound clean by following these easy tips:

  • Sweep sidewalks, patios and driveways and dispose of debris in the trash.

  • Remove leaves, debris, and trash around storm drains to prevent flooding and pollution.

  • Do not dump anything into storm systems or on the ground where it can be washed into the street storm system.

  • Do not use or limit the use of fertilizers, pesticides or other chemicals that can be washed away during rainfall.

  • Wash vehicles at a commercial car wash.
