Water Resources


Kitsap County is one of three Washington counties that do not receive any water supply from mountain snowpack. All of our water comes from rain that falls on the peninsula. Because of a rainshadow cast by the Olympic Mountains, this rainfall is unevenly distributed. Holly, in the southwest part of the county, gets over 80 inches per year whereas Hansville, in the north end, receives less than 30 inches. Watch this video to learn about Kitsap's unique hydrology and steps being taken to monitor and manage the water resources on which we all depend.
