Programs & Policies
Seattle Public Utilities leads many City programs to conserve, protect and manage Seattle's water. They oversee watershed plans, monitor clean water regulations, deliver innovative conservation programs and incentives, and manage the drainage system. Some conservation-related programs are listed below; more about the water system and services can be found on SPU's water system page.
Residents have a critical role to play as well, whether it's by helping save water or using green gardening practices to reduce pollutants in our water. Visit the Actions You Can Take section for more ideas.
