Pollution Control Team Protects Waterways

Seattle Public Utilities’ Pollution Control Team helps prevent pollution at its source.

When it rains, stormwater picks up a wide variety of pollutants from surfaces such as parking lots, maintenance yards, sidewalks and streets. This polluted runoff enters the storm drain system and flows directly to our water bodies, including creeks, lakes and Puget Sound. The only way to avoid rainwater from coming into contact with these pollutants is to stop it at its source.

The Pollution Control Team at SPU has the following programs to help business owners, property managers and residents prevent and control pollution.
