About This Meeting: The Aurora Bridge Team will present an overview of Phases 1- 3 of the project conceived by private land owner and developer, Mark Grey. Following the presentation at the library we'll tour all three phases starting with Phase one and the completed bioswales at the Data 1 site (home to Tableau) and we will see Phase 2 in construction, ending at Phase 3: the proposed site for a large-scale bioswale. The Aurora Bridge Bioswale Project presents a new opportunity for innovative water quality treatment of polluted stormwater runoff. Currently, runoff from the Aurora Bridge is polluted by vehicular traffic and is then discharged in part as untreated stormwater to an outfall at the Ship Canal, and partly discharged to Seattleā€™s capacity-constrained combined sewer system. In total, if permitted, all three phases will treat nearly 2 million gallon of runoff per year, eliminating it from the Lake Washington ship canal, a major salmon migration corridor.
