MEADOWBROOK POND IS NOW CLOSED FOR MAINTENANCE PROJECT

Message From Jonathan Brown of Seattle Public UtilitiesSeal of the City of Seattle

Dear Community Member,

We have kept the Meadowbrook Pond open as long as possible while we worked with the contractor to finalize pre-construction activities.

As of July 30, the Meadowbrook Pond will be closed for about 3 months so SPU contractor crews can remove accumulated sediment from the pond. Typical work hours will be Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. with possible evening and weekend work.

The perimeter path along 39th Avenue N.E. and N.E. 105th Street will remain open with intermittent disruption to allow for vehicle crossing. In addition, we worked with the contractor to also provide access to the footbridge via the path off 35th Avenue N.E. However, the rest of the site will be closed throughout much of construction for safety and security reasons.

We are continuing to work with our Urban Ecosystems team to monitor wildlife on the site. Last week, an SPU biologist marked the location of a green heron nest and coordinated with Washington State Fish and Wildlife to develop guidance for the construction team on ways to avoid impacting the area around the nest.

I will share updates throughout construction via this email list and the (project website). Thank you in advance for your patience and understanding as we perform this necessary maintenance work.

Regards,
Jonathan Brown
