Storm Drains Connect Streets to Creeks
All of the storm drains in the Town of Windsor discharge into creeks and ultimately drain into the Russian River. The discharge from the storm drains is not treated. That's why it's so important that people in Windsor take the necessary steps to prevent pollution in our creeks. To learn how to prevent pollution in your neighborhood or business area, click on the Business/Residents tab on this webpage, or visit  

Report Spills
Please report any clogged storm drain inlets, spills or dumping that could enter the storm drain system, and faded or missing storm drain labels to the Engineering Division of Public Works at (707) 838-1006 or 
email during regular business hours, Monday to Thursday, 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. For calls outside of business hours, please call our 24-hour phone line at (707) 838-1000.
