Thornton Creek Confluence Project Update February 25, 2015

Construction of the Thornton Creek Confluence project is nearly complete. We would like to thank you for your patience and support during construction and your ongoing interest in the project.

While the major construction work is done, you can still expect the following within the floodplain area:

• The contractor will be performing punch list items, which are minor corrections at the end of a project.
• Burlap ground cover and sandbags will remain as the plants become more established.
• On-site monitoring tubes placed in the creek during construction will be tended to by crews over the next year.
• Plant establishment will be ongoing. We ask that you and your pets stay on the designated sidewalk and out of the floodplain area for your own safety and to the benefit of the new plants.

As your provider of water, drainage, wastewater and solid waste services, SPU would appreciate if you would fill out this survey ( by March 13, 2015. Your responses allow SPU to assess how we are doing in providing information about construction projects in your neighborhood. This will also help us improve how we work with your community on future projects. The survey takes about 10 minutes to complete. Thank you!
