Stories for Thurston County

Water Quality stories support the Water Quality Program's activities. Some stories may fall under more than one category, and are listed accordingly.

City of Olympia -- Decatur Street LID Demonstration Project
Stormwater runoff from two blocks of Decatur Street SW from 9th to 11th Avenues entered the traditional stormwater system that currently pipes the runoff to Schneider Creek and into Puget Sound. During 2007 and 2008, the city of Olympia re-constructed those two blocks for a low impact development (LID) demonstration site.
