Please take our sea level rise survey and tell us your priorities for protecting Downtown Olympia.

There are many sea level rise and flooding related challenges facing the Downtown Olympia area.  Portions of the downtown are built on fill, shoreline areas are mapped within the 100-year flood zone, and high tides can back up into the stormwater system and cause surface street flooding.  Downtown flooding issues – both from high tides and intense rainfall – will worsen in the future as a result of sea level rise.

The City of Olympia, the Port of the Olympia and the LOTT Clean Water Alliance are working together to develop a comprehensive Sea Level Rise Response Plan to address these challenges and protect downtown.
