Who says the sewer agency and marine industry can’t be health providers!?


Shift Health Accelerator is helping Seattle Public Utilities, the Duwamish River Cleanup Coalition, and the surrounding marine industry to envision how to use the open space around a new sewer pump station to build community health. The uses could include pop-up stalls for local food vendors from the community, paths and vegetation for relaxing on break time, and signage and features to create more community cohesion. There’s all sorts of ways that other funding partners could join with Seattle Public Utilities to sustain the ongoing health benefits of this space if we get creative.
