Olympia’s Storm and Surface Water Plan provides strategic guidance to the Storm and Surface Water Utility.  The Utility is responsible for protecting against flooding, improving water quality, and enhancing aquatic habitat in Olympia. 

Olympia’s current Storm and Surface Water Plan has guided the Utility since 2003.  Since then, there have been significant changes in storm and surface water laws, technology, and Olympia’s urban environment.  This planning update will guide the Utility over the next decade.









Olympia's Comprehensive Plan

The Storm and Surface Water Utility draws guidance from Olympia's Comprehensive Plan. View the goals and policies that pertain to Olympia's water resources.
