At Seattle Public Utilities, our job is to protect the area’s quality of life. To do that, we:

Maintain some of the nation’s best drinking water – no need to buy bottled water!

Help Seattle residents and businesses be recycling leaders – we divert more waste than practically any city.

Protect local waterways and the Sound from polluted storm and waste water – through rain gardens, tank systems and overflow treatment.
