Meridian Street Water Quality Retrofit

​​​​​Project Overview:  EV-0162

This project will provide water quality retrofit treatment through construction of water quality treatment facilities along Meridian Street (State Route 539) between Bakerview Road and Stuart Road, and on Kellogg Road. 

This project addresses untreated runoff from one of the highest-volume roadways in the City. Portions of Meridian Street, which has an estimated 32,000 average daily vehicle trips, contribute runoff directly to Spring and Baker Creeks, which are tributaries to 303(d)-listed Squalicum Creek. Baker Creek itself also has been listed on the 303(d) list for bacterial contamination.

Meridian Street has a high volume of vehicles which is expected to necessitate night work.​

Funding provided by Department of Ecology grant and City 430 Storm & Surface Water Utility.
