Murray CSO project open house to focus on visible facility design concepts, Nov. 14

Review conceptual drawings, share thoughts and ideas with the project team

People seeking to comment on the preliminary design of visible facilities King County will build as part of the Murray Combined Sewer Overflow (CSO) Project are invited to a community open house.

Monday, Nov. 14 - 6:30 to 8 p.m.
Fauntleroy Church
9140 California Ave. S.W.

King County’s Murray CSO Control Project entails building a 1-million gallon underground storage tank across from Lowman Beach Park to prevent stormwater and raw sewage from overflowing into Puget Sound during heavy rains.

During the meeting, project staff will discuss design themes and present conceptual drawings that were developed in response to the ideas community members shared at an all-day design workshop on Oct. 29. People are invited to review and comment on these early design plans, and to provide any additional feedback.

For additional information about the project, or to arrange reasonable accommodations for people with disabilities at the meeting, please contact Doug Marsano at 206-684-1235 or email
