Whether you live urban or rural, we are a resource for you. District staff are available to meet with landowners to discuss options for improving and enhancing their property through water quality projects.
The District offers both technical assistance and some cost sharing options for property owners all across Pierce County. If you are a landowner interested in water quality improvement action on your property, contact us with any questions or to find out what services and programs may help you meet your goals.
Stay connected with our Green Stormwater Team by signing up for our quarterly newsletter, Water/Wise.
Rain gardens are bowl-shaped gardens that collect polluted runoff from buildings, roads, parking lots, and lawns. The plants in the rain garden absorb and clean this runoff, keeping pollution out of Puget Sound and beautifying our neighborhoods.
Excess pavement is not only an eyesore, it is also the single largest contributor of pollution to our waters in our region. By removing unnecessary pavement and creating green space we can beautify our communities and keep our water clean.
Rain barrels and rain tanks provide year-round benefits, including infiltrating stormwater into the landscape and storing water for reuse.
Planting trees in highly developed urban communities helps reduce stormwater runoff and provides other benefits, like cleaning the air and keeping neighborhoods cool.
Grass lawns are a big source of polluted runoff and require a lot of maintenance. Instead of growing grass, transform your lawn into habitat for birds, bees, and other wildlife. By creating habitat at home, you're reducing pollution, beautifying your neighborhood, and helping protect wildlife.
Are you ready to bring home some green? Learn how you can get technical and financial support on projects that reduce polluted stormwater runoff. Applications for 2024 Green Stormwater Mini-Grants are now closed, but check back next summer for information on how to apply for our 2025 projects.
Green Stormwater projects must be located in one of three watersheds to quality for technical and/or financial assistance from PCD. Exceptions are granted on a case-by-case basis.
