King County’s Environmental Lab and the Roads Services Division will be featured in a free public screening of the film,  “Engineering with Nature – An Ode to Water, Wood, and Stone” on Saturday, June 8 at 2 p.m. An entry in this year’s Seattle International Film Festival, the film is the story of Seattle Public Utilities’ Thornton Creek Project to reduce flooding and restore Chinook spawning habitat. The Environmental Lab did the analysis and testing to monitor how well the project worked, while the Roads Services Division also worked on the project and are interviewed in the film. 

The screening will be held at the Seattle Central Library, 1000 4th Ave. Seattle, WA. This will be followed by an extended Q&A with director Shelly Solomon, members of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Natural Systems Design, and other project participants. More information is available on the Seattle Public Library website, and seats can be reserved here. Tickets are free, but seating is limited.
