City of Tumwater – Utilities & Water Resources

The City of Tumwater Utilities and Water Resources Division manages drinking water, stormwater, sanitary sewer programs. We are proud to be able to serve our customers water of the highest quality, meeting or exceeding state and federal standards. We manage all stormwater on public lands, streets, and right-of-ways. Stormwater on private property is the responsibility of the land or business owner. We provide technical assistance to private stormwater facility owners – free of charge – for issues surrounding maintenance, upkeep, planting, pollution, and compliance with federal, state, and local regulations.
