Public Forum: Where's the Water? (LWV-TC)

Did you know that most of Thurston County water comes from groundwater and that there are no more water rights available in the County?

The League of Women Voters of Thurston County and The Olympian are sponsoring a series of public forums to educate the public about water resource issues as our local governments struggle with increased development pressures and limited natural resources.

The first forum takes place at the Olympia Center, 222 Columbia St. NW, from 6-8 PM on February 5.

Kevin Hansen, hydrogeologist for Thurston County, will speak about the relationship between our groundwater and the streams.

David Troutt, Natural Resources Director for the Nisqually Tribe, will talk about the planning process just completed for the Nisqually Watershed, and also discuss the proposal to convert I-5 to a causeway where it crosses the Nisqually estuary to save the freeway from flood damage and to restore salmon runs.

Come learn about the water we all depend on! Free! There will also be a water tasting from different water sources in the County.
