Story

King County is hosting two public meetings to answer questions about construction on a sewer improvement project near Smith Cove Park in Seattle’s Magnolia neighborhood.

The meetings will enable neighbors to meet the project team and get questions answered.

The first meeting is an outdoor drop-in information session set for Tuesday, May 13, 2014, from 5-7 p.m. at 32nd Avenue West and West Galer Street in Seattle where sewer pipe installation work will take place.

The second meeting is set for Wednesday, May 14, 2014, from 6-8 p.m. at the Discovery Park Environmental Learning Center, 3801 Discovery Park Boulevard, Seattle. King County invites neighbors to drop in any time to this informal open house. 

Construction is already under way on the South Magnolia Combined Sewer Overflow (CSO) control project that will protect public health and water quality by reducing overflows of stormwater mixed with small amounts of sewage during heavy rainfall.

The project entails building an underground storage tank that will temporarily hold stormwater and sewage during heavy rains when the West Point Treatment Plant is full.

In addition to the storage tank, construction will begin in the next few weeks on a new sewer line on 32nd Avenue West in Magnolia to connect the new tank to existing infrastructure.
