CHAMBERS LAKE STORMWATER TREATMENT FACILITY OPEN HOUSE
LACEY, WA, August 5, 2015: The City of Lacey Water Resources Department is inviting members of the public to attend an open house for the new Chambers Lake Stormwater Treatment Facility, located at 2750 Lakeview Drive SE. The open house will take place at the facility on Tuesday, August 11th, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Street parking in surrounding neighborhoods is limited, walking or carpooling is advised.
At the event, attendees can enjoy the new park-like facility with a root beer float and meet the facility engineers and City Council members. Lacey residents who attend the event and visit two informational stations can receive a free carwash coupon. Limit one per Lacey household, while supplies last.
With the help of a $1 million grant from the Washington State Department of Ecology, the City of Lacey has nearly completed the facility, which is situated near the eastern shore of Little Chambers Lake. Construction of the facility began in August 2014 and is now complete, with landscaping currently underway.
The Chambers Lake Stormwater Treatment Facility has a paved pedestrian trail through the city-owned seven-acre site and uses a four-celled engineered wetland to treat stormwater flows from College Street and surrounding neighborhoods. Treatment of this stormwater helps to improve water quality of Little Chambers Lake, which eventually drains to the Deschutes River and then Puget Sound through Budd Inlet. The project also includes a sanitary sewer line replacement and enhancement of the shoreline of Little Chambers Lake by creating habitat, open space, and new wetland-specific plantings.
