Woodard Creek Project

Thurston County received a grant to do a stormwater retrofit project in Woodard Creek after a report by the Washington Department of Ecology identified problems there.  

The grant came from the Washington State Department of Ecology under the National Estuary Program Watershed Protection and Restoration Grant Program, part of U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
 
The stormwater retrofit project includes installing stormwater facilities (like storm drains, pipes or ponds) in the stream or upland to remove pollutants, promote more natural hydrology and minimize erosion.
 
The consulting team of AHBL Civil Engineers and Northwest Hydraulic Consultants was selected to work with staff to identify, characterize, and prioritize needs on both public and private property. Only projects suitable for implementation by Thurston County within existing public right-of-way or property owned or that can be acquired by the County will proceed to the Pre-Design stage.
 
The highest priority projects will have a pre-design report prepared and will be prioritized and incorporated into the Thurston County Stormwater Utility’s Capital Facilities Plan for construction using existing capital facility funding through the utility and grant funding where available.
