A project to update the Olympus stormwater detention pond at S.E. 84th Way will retrofit the existing facility to the 2009 King County Surface Water Design Manual standards to improve the pond’s ability in providing runoff treatment and detention prior to discharge into Boren Creek.
The project is adjacent to Lake Boren Park.
The detention pond will be excavated and divided into two cells and two catch basins. A stormwater 24- inch diameter inlet pipe will be installed.
The existing outlet pipe will be also be improved. This project was awarded funding through the Washington State Department of Ecology’s competitive grant process.
The contractor of the project is AGR Contracting Inc. and was selected through the small works roster competitive bidding process.
The project start date was June 7 and the estimated completion date is July 23.
