Join us at the Georgetown Open Space Committee Meeting June 22, 2020 to hear about this project!

The Flume site, currently owned by Seattle City Light (SCL), was the historic site of the conveyance that transported water from the Duwamish River, to the Georgetown Steam Plant until it ended operation in 1975. SCL is offering the eastern piece of this property to Seattle Parks and Recreation (SPR) and the western piece to Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) as part of a public benefit package in exchange for a street vacation SCL has proposed for a segment of Diagonal Ave. S.. SCL will fund the environmental remediation of the site, including removal of contaminated soils. After the property is transferred, SPR and SDOT will each develop their property through independent projects.

The eastern portion of the site will be owned and maintained by SPR and developed into a new off-leash area. This project will also build a surface water bioswale to be shared with SDOT. 

The western portion will be owned and maintained by SDOT and developed into a shared use path for those walking, biking, or rolling between Georgetown and South Park.
