2019 EAST BREMERTON & EAST PORT ORCHARD STORMWATER RETROFIT PLAN
Kitsap County Public Works (KCPW) developed a stormwater retrofit plan for East Bremerton and East Port Orchard to identify, prioritize and construct stormwater retrofit projects that address water quality and drainage problems. Both Green Stormwater Solutions and conventional stormwater techniques are used. The end result is a suite of management planning tools, including a prioritized list of projects and conceptual designs to support KCPW’s Capital Facility Plan and assist with obtaining grant funding for final design and construction of priority projects.
