Temporary Construction Dewatering

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

The City of Redmond is working with the community to come up with a long-term policy for temporary construction dewatering (TCD). TCD is the artificial lowering of the groundwater to build underground structures in dry, workable conditions. This can impact the City’s ability to produce water from its wells, which provide 40% of Redmond’s drinking water. The City is currently conducting an analysis to determine the extent of tensions between new dense development patterns and water resource management policies. This work will focus on Downtown and Southeast Redmond as these are the areas of compact development that are over Redmond’s drinking water aquifer. For more details, please see the TCD Fact Sheet.

    The triple bottom line analysis will be used to understand the environmental, social, and economic cost of each of the scenarios. For this analysis, we want a variety of scenarios to see how the costs change by tweaking variables within each scenario. 

    Please review each variable and scenario and give us your feedback. Please remember that you are not voting for your favorite scenario. Instead we are looking to make sure we include all feasible options for the triple bottom line analysis. Phase II of this project (in 2021) will be to look at the results of the triple bottom line analysis to determine policy options. At that point, you will have the chance to provide feedback on your preferred option.

    If you’d like more background information before taking the questionnaire, please view the videos 1 – 4 on this page and read the TCD Scenario Documentation located in the Document Library. If you’d also like information on feedback from the external stakeholder group and how the scenarios were modified based on their feedback, please see the External Stakeholder Meeting #2 Summary located in the Document Library of this page.

    The following goals were determined for each component of the triple bottom line analysis (economic, environmental, and social) of the temporary construction dewatering (TCD) project. These goals were developed by City of Redmond staff and modified by an external stakeholder group representative of the community. Now we’d like your help! Please review each goal and give us your feedback.

    For more information on the feedback from the targeted external stakeholder group, please see the External Stakeholder Team Meeting #1 Summary and the Modified Goal Summary.
