Stormwater Runoff Goals Proposed

New Water Run-off Strategies for Seattle!


Mayor McGinn has announced a new goal of managing 700 million gallons of stormwater annually with green stormwater infrastructure, by the year 2025.  Rain-Gardens and Bio-Swales could be the major implementation.

The green stormwater goal will be achieved through a combination of City-led projects on public land, code-triggered private sector investments, and voluntary actions on private property.  This represents about a six-fold increase over the amount of stormwater Seattle currently manages with green infrastructure.
