BACK / SWALE ON YALE
KPG provided project management and design services for Seattle Public Utilities (SPU) “Swale on Yale” project, which incorporates biofiltration treatment swales along four city blocks in the Cascade Neighborhood. The project was designed to integrate SPU’s water quality goals and integrate the swales as part of the neighborhood's desire to create a sustainable and pedestrian friendly community. The project provides low flow pollutant removal for the 435 acres of Capitol Hill watershed. Improvements included 10’-17’ wide urban LID swales, sidewalks, mid-block crossings, street furniture and interpretive signing. The project was fully coordinated, designed and integrated with Vulcan Development for blocks 10 and 11 in the Cascade Neighborhood.
