Additional Information about SPU Soil Testing Results

On February 5th 2013, SPU staff briefed members of the Ballard Stormwater Consortium on the results of their October 2012 and December 2012 soil testing. They summarized the steps that they took in testing the soils and what they found out about the soil and groundwater.  The presentation contains these findings and describes SPU’s proposed next steps in identifying blocks that they believe are suitable for roadside raingardens.  SPU Feb 5 Presentation

We are looking forward to learning about the results of the community survey in terms of where people reported groundwater problems, wet basements, historical streams and other water problems.  It will be important for these to be taken into account.
