Piper's Creek

  • As rainwater collects on hard surfaces and moves downhill, it eventually flows to Piper’s Creek and then into Puget Sound.

So much of the Broadview neighborhood has been developed that nearly 60% of the area no longer allows the rain to seep naturally into the ground. Instead, rainwater collects on hard surfaces and moves downhill, primarily through ditches and culverts, eventually dumping into Piper’s Creek and then into Puget Sound.

The Flow Control Project will provide the information needed to measure the effectiveness of a variety of methods to reduce runoff.
