This project will reduce flooding in the northern part of South Park.
The northern industrial and residential area of South Park experiences chronic flooding for three reasons:
This project will construct roadways and stormwater conveyance systems to direct stormwater to the future pump station and water quality facility. The project’s scope and design are being planned in coordination with the Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT).
Rebuilding the roadways is an important part of this project; it allows the streets to drain effectively into the new stormwater conveyance system. Many of the streets in this area are in poor condition, which adversely affects water quality and impacts freight mobility. SPU and SDOT are working together to lessen construction impacts on the community.
