Much of our work is focused on reducing pollution and erosion caused by stormwater runoff -- from the time rainwater hits pavement, to the time it enters a body of water or the ground. We keep a watch over our water bodies through an extensive monitoring program, while Stream Team volunteers work to restore our local rivers and streams. Our work is guided by basin plans and watershed characterizations that take into account the unique characteristics and challenges in each watershed. 

The Stormwater Utility is part of the Thurston County Resource Stewardship Department.
