Carved out of an abandoned parking lot, the Thornton Creek Water Quality Channel is a water treatment facility and public open space that connects the surrounding community while restoring the environment. This 2.7-acre urban area is an artfully meandering channel that treats runoff from 680 acres.
There is a continuous expression of water flowing, pooling and cascading in the channel, but during and after storms the full capability of the broad channel bottom is engaged for water quality treatment. Overlooks and bridges allow pedestrians to enjoy the channel habitat and wildlife.
