What’s With the Little Bamboo Plants?

In the past hour, we have had two merchants ask about the bamboo plants that have just been “planted” on Pioneer Way so it may be time for a quick construction alert. First, please rest assured that the bamboo plants are not a last minute substitution for the Chanticleer Pear trees that we expect to arrive next week. The bamboo has, in fact, been planted inside the Filterra stormwater vaults and will perform a valuable function in helping to filter impurities that enter the drainage system when it rains. The bamboo species was selected because it is a very hardy and efficient plant that draws up water through its root structure. From an environmental perspective, these vaults are considered to be one of the best techniques available for cleaning stormwater runoff before it reaches Puget Sound. The maximum height will be about 4 feet. Maintenance is fairly simple and will be performed by our Public Works staff.

Feel free to give us a shout if you would like further information.
