In preparation for the start of major construction next year, King County is working with Puget Sound Energy to relocate gas lines away from the future sewer line. Work will occur in three areas across Mercer Island: 90th PL SE, 78th Ave SE, and SE 35th PL. Work is currently underway on 90th PL SE and will begin on 78th Ave SE in late December. SE 35th PL will see gas line work in late January. Read more about work on 90th PL SE and 78th Ave SE .

With over 400 miles of pipes moving wastewater to one of our award-winning treatment plants, King County WTD works hard to maintain our system. We inspect and monitor our regional system and update plans for needed upgrades.
King County WTD needs to replace sewer pipes that serve areas in North Mercer Island, the southwest portion of Bellevue near Enatai Beach, and the Town of Beaux Arts Village. This pipeline carries wastewater from the North Mercer Island Pump Station to the Sweyolocken Pump Station in Bellevue.
