Hear about King County proposals to control combined sewer overflows
July 29 meeting to focus on water quality improvements in north Seattle
Broadview residents and other interested community members are invited to learn about King County‘s proposals to control combined sewer overflows (CSOs) that affect Puget Sound beaches during heavy rains.
The Broadview Sewer Task Force is hosting a public meeting featuring presentations by staff from the county’s Wastewater Treatment Division on Thursday, July 29, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Carkeek Park Environmental Learning Center, 950 NW Carkeek Park Rd., Seattle.
The meeting will offer people an opportunity gain a better understanding of the county’s North Beach CSO Control Project and the three proposed project alternatives in the North Beach Basin. Martha Burke of Seattle Public Utilities will also be present.
More information about the North Beach CSO Control Project and the proposed alternatives is available on the project website at http://www.kingcounty.gov\CSOBeachProjects.
Those unable to attend the meeting are invited to review proposals and provide feedback online.

People enjoy clean water and a healthy environment because of King County's wastewater treatment program. The county’s Wastewater Treatment Division protects public health and water quality by serving 17 cities, 17 local sewer districts and more than 1.5 million residents in King, Snohomish and Pierce counties. Formerly called Metro, the regional clean-water agency now operated by King County has been preventing water pollution for nearly 50 years.
