Streamside Livin'Thurston County Storm & Surface Water Program

Sammy the Salmon says Hi!Hello!


You may have heard that my friends and I could use some help. People who live next to streams are in a unique position to give salmon a hand. Since your actions can really make a difference to us, this web site has been written just for you. It turns out that what's good for us is good for you too! The actions you take to create a clean, safe place for us to live are the same actions that help protect your family's health and property! We're all in this together, so read on, and thanks for helping out!
