Storm Water Quality and Management
Do you recognize this creek? Is it near your home? It's Windsor Creek! Here you will find some great information for Windsor and Sonoma County residents to help keep Windsor's creeks beautiful and clean.
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.

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.
OPEN HOUSE: Future Hall Park Stormwater Detention Basin Project
Subject: Open House for Hall Park Detention Basin Project – April 19, 2022
Drop in between 4:30-6 PM on Tuesday, April 19, at Hall Park (431 Jane Drive) for an open house to preview the proposed plan for a detention basin at Michael Hall Park. The project goal is to help mitigate flooding in downstream parts of the Town. In addition to maintaining existing park features, there may be desirable design elements which can be added to the project such as paved path network options and landscape ideas to enhance the Park.
Public Works welcomes your ideas and input. Links to specific project information are below.
