Video: What comes down, must go out – into Puget Sound, off Alki

The latest video from diver/videographer Laura James just came in overnight – with another vivid reminder that what comes down, must go out, into the waters around us: She’s continuing to chronicle outfalls off West Seattle shores, and discovered rain runoff right off central Alki Beach, parallel with 55th/56th SW. The pipe in her video, Laura says, is in water that’s only about 20 feet deep at high tide. (Photos here.) And as you will see at the end of her clip, it’s yet another reason to take the time to learn how not to feed the Tox-Ick Monster. Been to one of Sustainable West Seattle‘s presentations yet? If not, next one’ s less than two weeks away, with prizes again awaiting those in attendance – 7 pm Monday, October 10, at Pathfinder K-8 on Pigeon Point.

    Such a cool local video! Ugly stuff, sure, but really well covered. I guess it should be a little sad that this is a problem so obvious to the eye that it doesn’t even need a voice-over explanation. In any case, thanks, Tox-Ick! (Great name)

    That just makes me sick. The causes of the ‘monster’ are many, but the obvious problem is mankind and our lack of taking care of our Mother Earth.

    Drive less and ride a bike or bus….simple. I’m almost 50 and I ride my bike 21 miles each way to work…..simple and healthy.

    Stop washing your car at home. Wash oyur car at a car wash where all the oils, grease and dirt get collected in a tank…..simple.

Sorry, comment time is over.
