In the Pacific Northwest, we enjoy plenty of creeks, streams, rivers and lakes. We swim, boat, and fish in these waterways and want to keep them healthy and clean. They add beauty to our community and provide habitat for abundant wildlife.

We all play a role in keeping those waters clean in our everyday actions at home, work, school and play. Simple stewardship actions can help keep pollution from reaching our waterways. In Clark County, our stormwater drains go directly to stormwater facilities or the creeks themselves. It is important to realize what could get into a storm drain, besides rain water. Use the panel to the right to navigate our resources and find out if your everyday actions are protecting our watershed.
