Sea Level Rise Response Plan: City of Olympia, Washington

AECOM led a collaborative and jointly funded planning effort with the City of Olympia, Port of Olympia, and LOTT Clean Water Alliance to develop a Sea Level Rise Response Plan to protect the capitol city’s downtown area. Olympia (population 52,490) already experiences flooding from the Deschutes River and Puget Sound several times a year and sea level rise will dramatically increase Olympia’s flood risk. The downtown area is the social, cultural, historic, and economic core of the city and also contains a regional wastewater treatment facility and the Port of Olympia.
