Next Wednesday, Seattle Public Utilities will host a drop-in session at the Ballard Library to provide information about the project to improve water quality in the Ship Canal and Lake Union.
The Ship Canal Water Quality Project will build a 2.7-mile, 18-foot-wide tunnel between Wallingford and Ballard that will capture and temporarily hold more than 29 million gallons of stormwater mixed with some sewage during heavy rains. After storms, the flow will be sent to the West Point Wastewater Treatment Plant in Magnolia.
The drop-in session, to be held Dec. 11 from 5pm to 7pm, will provide info about the construction plans and schedule, allow for community feedback on project design elements, and allow the public to ask questions and talk to the project team.
