The Big Green Stormwater Experiment
Because green stormwater management methods are relatively new, little is known about how long structures like rain gardens will last or what ongoing maintenance permeable pavement will need—or even whether these methods make any difference when it comes to protecting the environment.

TAKE ACTIONClick TAKE ACTION (above) to find out how easily we can influence public policy. Our mission is to promote, protect, and preserve the Urban Forest. One of the most effective ways to do this is sending letters and emails to our representatives in government. With a couple of clicks you can easily send a pre-written email to your local representative in either Seattle or King County. You can also modify the prewritten email if you so choose, personalizing your communication with your representative. Based on current events, TreePAC composes a new email each year to lobby for better funding, laws, or enforcement. We do not share or sell our contact list with anyone. And we will not fill your emailbox with more and more requests for action or money. Moderate but steady and focused perseverance will get the job done! Please help us make change happen. It’s overdue.
