Last week our team launched Depave the Duwamish, a King
County and King Conservation District funded project that will entail
pulling up unnecessary asphalt at industrial sites in the Duwamish
Valley and replacing it with rain gardens, trees, and other plants. This
has a powerful positive impact on our waterways, cleaning dirty
stormwater as it filters through the ground, preventing polluted runoff
from entering the Sound and other waterways. Tune in to the project on Facebook!
be a feasible Depave site for this project, properties need to fit
certain criteria. For one, we are focusing on sites that are not
connected to the Combined Sewer System, andarenot known toxic cleanup sites.Two, we are seeking sites withproperty owners whoare excited to partnerwith us on this projecttoremove asphalt and improve the site with greenery and other amenities to improve customer and employee experiences.
Know of a good site? Have questions about the site criteria? Let us know!
