Story

King County will host two public meetings for people seeking information about upcoming construction on a green stormwater infrastructure project in West Seattle’s Westwood and Sunrise Heights neighborhoods.

The first meeting is set for Thursday, Jan. 23, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at Westside School, 7740 34th Ave. S.W., Seattle.

The second meeting takes place on Saturday, Jan. 25, from 10 to 11:30 a.m. at High Point Neighborhood House, 6400 Sylvan Way S.W., Seattle.

King County is carrying out the project to control overflows of stormwater mixed with small amounts of sewage at the Barton Pump Station, which is located next to the Fauntleroy Ferry Dock. The project entails building bioretention swales in the public right-of-way to better manage stormwater that causes King County’s sewer lines to overflow on rainy days. 

People can also get updates and information by visiting the project website at http://www.kingcounty.gov/environment/wtd/Construction/Seattle/BartonCSO-GSI.aspx or by calling Kristine Cramer in the County’s Wastewater Treatment Division at 206-477-5415.
