Storm and Surface Water Utility


Report spills or illicit discharges into the stormwater system directly to City staff by calling (360) 855-0771. An after-hours voice mail message system will allow you to record a message or, if the severity warrants, will direct you to call 911.

In most of Sedro-Woolley, the storm drains discharge directly to creeks or streams and then into the Skagit River. Sedro-Woolley's miles of open streams and wetlands hold and carry stormwater along with underground pipes, regional stormwater facilities, and over 57 neighborhood stormwater storage sites. This system holds and carries stormwater to prevent flooding and erosion.

Please do your part in helping to protect our waterways. Report any spill, illicit discharge, or illegal connection to our waterways or storm sewer system by calling the number above. City staff understands the need for confidentiality, so calls can be anonymous. However, please provide as much detail as possible about the spill or illegal activity including date, time, location and description. In addition, a description of the pollutant will be helpful. Keeping pollutants out of the water that flows to the storm drains is the best strategy for protecting our surface waters.

The City has also partnered with Skagit Conservation District for public outreach and education opportunities. Additional information on education and volunteering can be found at the district's website ( or (360) 428-4313.
