McAleer Creek and Lyons/Ballinger Creek Open House for Shoreline residents

Friday, August 29, 2014

Some or all of the neighborhoods of Echo Lake, Ballinger,
North City and Briarcrest are part of these basins.

On Wednesday, September 17, 2014 from 5:30pm to 7:00pm the City of Shoreline Surface Water Utility will hold an Open House at Bruggers Bog Park.

The City’s Surface Water Utility conducted a study of the McAleer (including Echo Lake) and Lyons/Ballinger Creek drainage basins (only those parts of the basin within the Shoreline city limits) in Spring/Summer 2014 to identify drainage, water quality, and stream habitat issues in these basins and potential management strategies to address the identified issues.

In addition, the City assessed the condition of the subsurface stormwater conveyance system (storm pipe network) in each basin.

City Staff will be conducting a McAleer (including Echo Lake) and Lyons/Ballinger Creek Open House to discuss preliminary findings of the study at Bruggers Bog Park, 19533 25th Ave NE, Shoreline, Washington 98155 on Wednesday, September 17, 2014 from 5:30pm to 7:00pm. 

Staff will be there to explain the studies and preliminary results and recommendations. If you are unable to attend the Open House and would like to provide input, contact Brian Landau, Surface Water and Environmental Services Manager, 206-801-2451 or see the project webpage.

The City has claimed it is qualified to run the wastewater utility on the strength of its petformance running a surface water utility. Yet, it has held off announcing this open house until exactly one day after a public hearing before the Snohomish County Boundary Review Board, concerning the City's declaration of intent to assume the Ronald Wastewater District's system in Snohomish County (includin Point Wells), and ten days after a similar public hearing before the King County Boundary Review Board for the Shoreline portion.

If the City's credentials as a surface water utility were relevant to those proceedings, why hold back information from the public on this?
