Champagne Creek Rain Garden

Champagne Creek Project Location
The City of Kirkland is building a rain garden within public right-of-way this fall on the northeast corner of 80th Avenue Northeast and Northeast 123rd Street.  The rain garden will filter the rainwater runoff from more than three acres off Northeast 123rd Street and the roofs, driveways, and sidewalks of the neighborhood.

A rain garden is a shallow, bowl-shaped garden that uses soils and plants to absorb and filter the stormwater that would otherwise drain directly from rooftops, driveways, parking lots and streets directly into Lake Washington.  This project is funded in part through a King County Water Works grant contributing $90,000 towards project construction.  

Construction hours and timeline: Kirkland's contractor will work 8 hours a day, between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m., starting in late-September, ending in October.  Contact Associate Project Engineer, Hunter Richards,hrichards@kirklandwa.gov, 425.587.3244 for more information.

Volunteer:  Kirkland's staff has planned a volunteer planting event in the fall after construction is complete.  Contact Surface Water Planner, Rachel Konrady, rkonrady@kirklandwa.gov, 425.587.3244 for more information.
