We are focusing on catch basins and outfalls surrounding Lake Union and Lake Washington, initial projects include the Aurora Bridge, the Fremont Bridge, the Ballard Bridge, the University Bridge, the Montlake Bridge and the Ship Canal Bridge.
Before our work, storm water flowed untreated into the lake, which harmed the health of the lake and the greater ecosystem that it supports.
Aurora Bridge Project
The Aurora Bridge Project aims to address the nearly 2,000,000 gallons of polluted runoff from the bridge that enters Lake Union and the Fremont Cut annually. Each phase of this multi year project was possible because of the innovative support of private developers and Seattle business leaders.
