Special Monitoring Projects

Special  Monitoring Projectsprecipitatoin

Occasionally, the Thurston County Monitoring Program works on projects that are driven by events (for example, flooding in a particular neighborhood). These projects typically take place for a limited period of time over the course of the project development, and subsequent evaluation of the post-construction effectiveness of the project.  They range from two to five years

The results from these projects may help a broader audience than the original study area and are therefor valuable for the public or other government agencies.  The results of some of these projects are published in the links below.
