We were fortunate to have Kevin Buckley of Seattle Public Utilities come to our monthly board meeting. He presented us with a booklet entitled "Protecting Seattle's Waterways". It outlines alternatives and plans to prevent untreated sewage and stormwater from poluting our treasured waters. I encourage people to look at it.
We spoke about working together. If they implement roadside (or other) raingardens, perhaps they could be designed to serve as green space for Seattleites. For example, if 17th Ave NW or 14th Ave NW were to be lined with raingardens, they could form a true greenway from upper Ballard to the Ship Canal.
