Press, Yelm and Thurston County Issues

The Olympian reported on Tuesday, August 18 in their front-page story titled “Yelm drops water rights proposal” that the city’s mitigated determination of non-significance (MDNS) has been withdrawn due to lack of additional water rights granted in 2009 by the Dept. of Ecology, a significant development.

“The city had proposed to boost its water supply five times above its current allotment by 2037, in part to supply a new 5,000 home development called Thurston Highlands” reported The Olympian.
