Once drinking water is used in the home or industry it is treated as waste water. Wastewater is collected in a sanitary sewer system and treated to meet water quality standards prior to being discharged to Sinclair Inlet. Wastewater collection, treatment, Combined Sewer Overflow Reduction and Downspout Separation Programs are key services and programs that help ensure the correct handling of wastewater prior to it entering the marine waters we are surrounded by and enjoy.

The stormwater utility provides new stormwater pipes to collect runoff in an effort to prevent flooding of streets, homes and businesses. The utility provides catch basin and storm sewer pipe cleaning. Until recently, the stormwater collection system did not support all areas of Bremerton, so most stormwater was collected in the wastewater system which caused Combined Sewer Overflows. CSOs are the discharge of untreated wastewater and stormwater into Sinclair Inlet and Port Washington Narrows. Click here for more information.
