A perfect storm on April 29 gathers artists, engineers, urban planners, and Belltown neighbors at a “Water Bootcamp” to explore natural resource sustainability and resiliency.
SEATTLE – Join Growing Vine Street on Saturday, April 29 from 1pm to 4:30pm at the Belltown Community Center for the 2017 Water Bootcamp. Learn how to preserve the essential water systems that silently support and nourish us every day.
Seattle’s daily water use reaches about 200 million gallons per day in the summer all of it coming from the Green River watershed. A recent mechanical failure at West Point caused million gallons of untreated waste to flow into the water near Discovery Park.
2017 Water Bootcamp will share incredible technology innovations and design changes to help Seattle respond to climate change and address the profound physical and financial challenges faced by our existing water supply and treatment infrastructure.
Inspiring Water Bootcamp keynote speakers include: Drew Ganges from MKA in Seattle and June Grant, Principal from Blink!Lab Architecture based out of Oakland, California. They will share their visionary designs and innovations to help our current infrastructure function better.
Participants will learn about the “Green Machine” and other tools take a direct approach to address water systems and prevent polluted runoff into Puget Sound. Buster Simpson, an internationally recognized public artist based in Seattle, joins the discussion to share how he the Green Street concept created community through the Growing Vine Street project and thoughts about how we can make a difference in our communities today.
Refreshments will be provided at this FREE event. Space is limited; please reserve your spot today: bit.ly/WaterBootcampPhp
