Are you impacted by flooding in Thurston County?

High stream and river flows, high groundwater (temporary ponding) from heavy rains, and stormwater over roadways and urban areas are just a few of the sources of flooding in Thurston County that pose risks to people, property, and businesses.

Thurston County is updating its Flood Hazards Mitigation Plan. The plan will identify and prioritize long-term strategies to lessen the impacts of floods. We need to hear from residents and business owners about how flooding might affect you. The county's Flood Planning Committee wants to learn what you are doing and what you think the county should do to reduce flood hazards.

Please take a few minutes to answer the 19 questions that follow. Your participation is very important and will help shape the plan. No personal information is collected, so candid feedback is encouraged!
