SEWARD PARK – This week, Seattle Public Utilities (SPU) will hold a public hearing seeking input on its decision to build a 2.4 million gallon underground tank beneath the Seward Park tennis courts to store raw sewage and stormwater flows during heavy rain events.
SPU says its North Henderson area projects will reduce the amount of untreated sewage and polluted stormwater that is overflowing into Lake Washington at combined sewer overflow outfalls near Seward Park and Martha Washington Park.
The nearly 300-page Draft Environmental Impact Statement can be found here, and comments are due no later than Wed., Oct. 17.
The meeting is scheduled for Mon., Oct. 8, from 6 to 8 pm at Seward Park Environmental and Audubon Center (5902 Lake Washington Blvd. S.).
