North Creek Channel Relocation and Wetland Reconstruction at the UWB/CCC Co-located Campus

Location: Bothell, WA
Client: Washington State Department of General Administration (subconsultant to NBBJ)

Restoring this 130-acre site posed several challenges, all of which were increased by the need to accommodate the development of Washington's first collocated college campus. Using historical data and regional references, Otak restored the meanders and grading along 3,800 feet of the creek, reconnecting it to 60 acres of wetlands and reinstating natural habitat and native species. At the same time, sanitary sewer and storm drainage systems were improved to protect the creek from future degradation.
