(DrainageNews) Utility proposes 2 long-term fixes to keep Madison Valley dry - Seattle Times

NWjobs | NWautos | NWhomes | NWapartments | NWsource | Classifieds | seattletimes. With the rainy season approaching, officials at Seattle Public Utilities are relying on an early-warning system for people in the flood-prone Madison Valley basin and are proposing two long-term fixes to the neighborhood's chronic flooding. Many residents who live in the lowest part of the valley, along 30th Avenue East between East John and East Thomas streets, still haven't recovered emotionally from the sight of raw sewage and muddy floodwater soaking their basements and belongings last December. Resident Barbara Lynn said she likes the diversion option and doesn't want more homes bulldozed — four were already cleared to make way for the detention pond across from her house in the 100 block of 30th Avenue East. read me
