Stormwater

Douglas County’s stormwater program helps to keep our waterways clean and healthy, and ensures that pollutants do not leave construction sites, prohibits illicit discharges, and educates the public and local businesses on what they can do to help.

What is stormwater?

Stormwater is water from rain or snowmelt that does not infiltrate into the ground and flows across the land. Stormwater drains into a combination of underground pipes, inlets, drainage ditches, and ponds designed to collect, convey, and discharge directly into our local creeks and rivers. Unlike sanitary sewage drains, stormwater does not enter a wastewater treatment plant to be treated.

To Report Spills and Concerns for Stormwater, please email [email protected] or click the below button.

Inadequate stormwater management can result in flooding, infrastructure, and property damage, excessive soil erosion, degraded open space, unacceptable water quality in potable water supply reservoirs and other water bodies with decreased recreational and/or fish and wildlife values.

Have you ever wondered if you need flood insurance?
