Project update

December 6, 2016

Project construction continues

Work continues on the new sewer pipe being installed near the intersection of Rainier Ave. S. and S. Bayview St. This pipe will send sewage and stormwater from a pipe that gets full during storms to another pipe that has more room.

Excavation work has begun for the 340,000-gallon underground storage tank that will be placed under the county property at the intersection of S. Hanford St. and S. 27th Ave. S. The tank will be connected to an existing sewer pipe in S. Hanford St.

Project description

This project will keep sewage and stormwater out of the Duwamish River. A new sewer pipe will be installed near the intersection of Rainier Avenue South and South Bayview Street to send sewage and stormwater from a pipe that gets full during storms to another pipe that has more room. 

A storage tank at the intersection of South Hanford Street and South 27th Avenue will catch any remaining extra sewage and stormwater to keep sewage and stormwater out of the Duwamish River.
