Puget Sound

I haven’t blogged about this much, but Puget Sound is pretty damn polluted. The cause? Storm runoff, mostly. Oil and grease from the city streets are dumping the equivalent of an Exxon Valdez into the Sound every two years. Intesnse!

Fortunately, we have solutions for storm runoff: Bioswales. There are a few scattered throughout Seattle as test projects. This is one problem that we can solve. Swales can cut this down by 99 percent.
