Rochester Area Projects
Rochester Drainage Projects

The County is focused on improving stormwater drainage in the South Thurston County community of Rochester, including the area around US-12/Main Street.

Community members in Rochester helped with the project by identifying problem areas. The locations they noted were put on this online map. Although the Rochester stormwater survey is closed, please continue to report standing water and flooding problems through the County's online form.

​Albany Street Stormwater Loop

Community input helped the County develop a solution for the area: a new stormwater pond designed to drain rainwater from a 30-acre area where residents noted drainage problems.
