SPU Broadview Project Updates – June 18 Public Meeting

manwhole[1]Dear Broadview Neighbor,

I wanted to send you an update on the Broadview Sewer and Drainage Improvement Project. As many of you know, Seattle Public Utilities (SPU) is evaluating alternatives for sewer and drainage improvements in the western (12th Ave NW basin) and southern and eastern (Dayton Ave N basin) areas of Broadview. The proposed improvements will be focused on the areas with the highest frequency of sewer backups and high-priority drainage issues.

Save the Date: Next Broadview Sewer and Drainage Improvement Public Meeting June 18

On Wednesday, June 18 from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m. at Bitter Lake Community Center we will have our next community meeting. At that time, we will present information and gather feedback from residents about leading 12th Avenue NW basin drainage alternatives, and Dayton Avenue N basin sewer alternatives. We will send out a postcard soon announcing this meeting. We hope you can join us.

Geotechnical Study and Groundwater Monitoring Work in Dayton Ave N Basin

As part of the project, we recently installed groundwater monitoring equipment in locations throughout southern and eastern Broadview. This geotechnical study will help SPU understand groundwater conditions as we plan for improvements to the sewer and drainage systems in the Dayton Ave N basin.

Next Steps

12th Ave NW Basin

Our goal is to identify preferred sewer and drainage improvements for the 12th Ave NW basin by the end of this year. As we move toward developing a preferred set of improvements for the 12th Ave NW basin, we will pair leading sewer and drainage alternatives. During this process, we will hold community meetings to provide updates and receive your input.

Dayton Ave N Basin

For the Dayton Ave N basin, our goal is to identify preferred sewer and drainage improvements by mid-2015. Later this year, we will evaluate drainage alternatives for this portion of Broadview. We will then pair leading sewer and drainage alternatives for this basin. Throughout this project, we will engage the community and seek your input on key project elements.

Thanks—
