The Port of Seattle Starts MGIF Project

The Port of Seattle kicks off a pilot project this morning to reduce the amount of polluted runoff reaching Puget Sound.

The Port is hosting a two-year study site for two unique metal boxes which will bloom into rain gardens and help reduce pollutants. This effort is in partnership with King Conservation District, Sustainable Seattle, Gealogica LLC, and Splash Boxx LLC.

Moving Green Infrastructure Forward (MGIF) is a research/demonstration project to test the water quality performance of two innovative stormwater treatment techniques, which are part of growing efforts to reduce the amount of polluted runoff reaching Puget Sound, which is estimated to receive between 14 and 94 million pounds of toxic pollutants every year.
