SvR is working with Seattle Public Utilities (SPU) and Seattle Parks and Recreation to restore habitat for juvenile Chinook salmon along Lake Washington at the mouth of Mapes Creek. SPU is designing a dedicated pipe system for Lower Mapes Creek through the developed Rainier Valley, which will transition to an open creek channel in Be’er Sheva Park with over 400 feet of stream habitat. SvR led the consulting team for the design of the creek channel in the park, including the design of grading, utilities, paving, landscape and riparian planting, irrigation and creek restoration, as well as coordination with the project artist. The project works to address Parks’ concerns for maintenance and safety, the needs of park users, and providing Chinook salmon habitat enhancements.
