words that say Thurston County

Flood Information

Of all the natural hazards that affect Thurston County, floods are the most common and, on an annual basis, the most costly. Examples include river flooding, where a river breaches its banks, and groundwater flooding, where the water table rises so high it fills low-lying pockets of land. Thurston County enforces regulations to protect residents and property from flooding, and to preserve floodplains as a natural means of flood control.
