‘Green stormwater’ proposal: New details of August 5th meeting

July 20, 2010 at 3:09 pm | In Environment, Sunrise Heights, West Seattle news, Westwood | 2 Comments

New details today about an event first mentioned at last week’s Fauntleroy Community Association meeting (WSB coverage here). A so-called “green stormwater” project is one of the three combined-sewer-overflow (CSO) reduction proposals for the “basin” feeding the Barton Pump Station by the Fauntleroy ferry terminal. If that option is chosen, it would change the streetscapes in the area of the “basin” outlined with yellow street lines in the map above – which includes areas of Sunrise Heights and Westwood. The county wants to be sure everybody potentially affected gets a chance to have questions answered, and they’ve now chosen a time and place for the previously mentioned August 5th meeting – 6 pm, The Hall at Fauntleroy. In the meantime, if you’re just tuning in to this, here’s more info on the county website. (As for the other CSO project, for the Murray “basin” feeding the station at Lowman Beach Park, citizens’ advisory group meetings continue – calendar here – and discussion is planned at tomorrow night’s Morgan Community Association meeting, 7 pm at The Kenney.)

  1. The yellow street lines in Westwood Area represent streets that would get bioswales (curb bulb out with vegetation) where the street drainage would be funneled to to alleviate overflow at the Barton Pump Station.

  2. I’ve seen several examples of this in north Seattle and they look gorgeous. I live in that area and would love to have it happen here!
