    Water Study Meeting 1

    League members working on Thurston County Water Realities Study—Part II have been learning about the most urgent factors faced by Thurston County as it encounters increasingly longer and drier summers, shorter wetter rainy periods, and a growing population. Local streams are supporting fewer and fewer salmon. Ground water reservoirs are not being sufficiently recharged.

    Given that the quality and quantity of Thurston County water is complicated by factors that include the Hirst Decision and a subsequent law passed by the Legislature in March 2018, the LWV-TC Study Group will host Five Public Meetings in 2019.
