Solid Waste Division
The Public Works Road Division maintains, operates and improves over 900 miles of roads situated in unincorporated Kitsap County. This effort requires approximately 150 engineers, surveyors, planners, technicians, road workers and others who are dedicated to preserving and enhancing the County's transportation network in a safe and cost effective manner.
The Road Division is divided into three sections, Engineering, Road Maintenance, Traffic Operations and Transportation Planning. Each provides specialized services to County residents. Together we manage the County's transportation network. The ultimate goal of the Division's work is to develop, operate and maintain safe and efficient roadways that meet the public's expectations and respect the natural and manmade environment.

The Clean Water Kitsap partnership protects people, property and the environment by managing flooding and preventing water pollution. Our nationally recognized stormwater management program is funded by some of the lowest rates in Western Washington.
Here is what your stormwater fees pay for:
Drainage ImprovementsWe improve the storm drain system to reduce flooding, improve water quality, and increase fish passage. Our inspection and maintenance program prevents pollutants and debris from entering waterways.
Water Quality ProtectionOur partners know that there is more to surface waters than what is on the surface. Watershed health monitoring, water cleanup and restoration projects, and public health water monitoring keep our waters safe for recreation and shellfishing.
Public Education & InvolvementOur many community programs help citizens understand their connection to water quality. Programs like the Rain Gardens and More cost share, Backyard Habitat Restoration, and Agriculture Technical Assistance help property owners improve their homes while protecting our watersheds.
Water Resource Planning
Careful planning on a watershed scale ensures that people, fish and wildlife continue to have abundant, clean water. We collaborate with community partners to identify and apply strategies for protecting our water resources while making sure we have needed growth.
