  • Laura James is a long-time scuba diver who lives in Seattle. James and a couple of buddies took video cameras down to where one West Seattle storm drain empties into Elliot Bay. Taken January 18th, after much of the Pineapple Express dumped a lot of water onto Seattle metro area.
  • In summary, we get three big issues with stormwater and conventional approaches to its management: too much too fast, poor quality water and increasing costs to maintain the system.
  • Emerging evidence that salmon olfactory is damaged. 63 pesticides were found at the source drinking water intake on the Clackamas River, near Portland, Oregon. Glyphosate and its derivative was one of the most frequent pollutants detected. Once invasives are established in an environment, our responsibility is to remove them where possible, but also we should be focusing efforts on preventing them in the first place.

    • 14. Impacts of Conventional Approaches
      • Water quantity: too much too fast
      • 15. Water quality: the stormwater superhighway for non-point pollutants
      • 16. Costs: O & M, combined sewer overflows, etc.
    • More Runoff
      Arriving Faster
      Flooding and Urban Development
      Flow Rate, cfs
      Time, hours
