HISTORY

Seattle Public Utilities (SPU) is replacing its open reservoirs with underground structures that will improve the quality and security of our water supply and provide new public open spaces on reservoir lids throughout Seattle. The Maple Leaf Reservoir is one reservoir that has been covered and has allowed for new park space using funding from the 2008 Parks and Green Spaces Levy.
