Olympus stormwater pond improved
July 3, 2012
A project to update the Olympus stormwater detention pond at Southeast 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 24-inch stormwater inlet pipe will be installed.
The existing outlet pipe will be improved. The project was awarded funding through the Washington State Department of Ecology’s competitive grant process.
The contractor of the project, AGR Contracting Inc., was selected through the small works roster competitive bidding process.
The project start date was June 7; the estimated completion date is July 23.
