West Seattle scene: RainWise celebration at Peace Lutheran

With the rain record we’ve just set, it’s almost humorous that there wasn’t a drop in sight when RainWise threw a party today at Peace Lutheran Church in Gatewood, in honor of the “green stormwater infrastructure” that has lessened the load on the combined-sewer system in the area, to reduce the chances of overflows into Puget Sound.

The church is in what King County refers to as the “Barton basin,” where combined-stormwater overflow control has been put into place via projects like this as well as the county-installed raingardens and bioswales in nearby Westwood and Sunrise Heights a short distance to the east.

Here’s a map showing green-stormwater-infrastructure projects around Seattle and King County.

    That looks terrific. We has these installed on our street  they don’t look like this, just some grass plants.  We we’re told they would look nice , they don’t. Glad for the project , unhappy with results.

Sorry, comment time is over.
