2. Project Locations

These project sites were identified through an extensive watershed evaluation process, and were chosen for several reasons. 

 

These sites:

1. Would benefit from treating polluted rain water,

2. Could fit within the City's right-of-way, and

3. Had characteristics that made low impact development techniques such as bioretention possible

See below for descriptions of project work and its benefits for each site.

55th PI. W and 127th St. SW

Rain water in this area carries pollutants from roads, driveways, lawns, and other neighborhood sources to wetlands and Picnic Point Creek. This polluted rain water is currently not treated.  The City proposes installing bioretention landscape areas (also called “rain gardens”). The bioretention design will collect and treat polluted rain water from 0.67 acres in the neighborhood before it reaches Picnic Point Creek.  The design will also create green space, remove a few parking spaces, and provide traffic calming in the neighborhood.

Rain water in this area carries pollutants from industrial and commercial roadways, several businesses, multi-family residential units, and parking surfaces to Big Gulch Creek.  This polluted rain water is currently not treated.  The City proposes installing bioretention landscape areas (also called “rain gardens”) and an underground vault system to treat polluted rain water before it reaches Big Gulch Creek.  The bioretention design will treat 0.55 acres and the vault system treat 13.84 acres of polluted rain water from the neighborhood.  The design will also create green space, remove a few parking spaces, and provide traffic calming in the neighborhood.
