Description Stormwater runoff from two blocks of Decatur Street SW from 9th to 11th Avenues entered the traditional stormwater system that currently pipes the runoff to Schneider Creek and into Puget Sound. During 2007 and 2008, the city of Olympia re-constructed those two blocks for a low impact development (LID) demonstration site. The city will quantatively compare the three different innovative LID techniques that clean and allow the stormwater runoff to infiltrate next to and under the road.
