There are 122 data collection sites that are managed by the Water Resources Group located all across Thurston County. These sites consist of data collection equipment that measure multiple types of environmental conditions ranging from groundwater to atmospheric parameters and streamflow/river flow conditions. The data is collected, processed to Department of Ecology standards, and provided to users in many formats.
