Hazel’s Creek is an important stormwater treatment facility offering education in Low Impact Development (LID) for the Moran Prairie neighborhood and City of Spokane. LID is an approach to stormwater management that attempts to mimic nature by storing and treating stormwater as close to where it falls as possible. In addition, Hazel’s Creek is a cultural and natural amenity, highlighting a recent agricultural past and providing valuable open space. The land contains critical wetland and upland habitat that support a diverse array of plant and animal life.
