Story

The public is invited to learn about an upcoming King County project that will help protect water quality in the Lower Duwamish River during heavy rains.

King County’s Wastewater Treatment Division will host three drop-in sessions to share initial information and hear public thoughts about its Georgetown Wet Weather Treatment Station Project, which is scheduled for construction in 2017.

The project is needed to protect public health and the environment during heavy rains when stormwater mixed with sewage can overflow into local waterways, including the Lower Duwamish River.

The drop-in sessions are the beginning of many opportunities for residents to stay informed and involved as project plans develop. People can meet project staff, ask questions and share thoughts.
