The King County Department of Natural Resources and Parks (DNRP) Wastewater Treatment Division (WTD) Brightwater Center is proposing modest increases in 2019 for rental rates to help cover the increasing maintenance, operating and asset replacement expenses at the Brightwater Center facility located in Woodinville. WTD is required to cover all operation expenses associated with the rental program through rental fees and has not increased rates since the opening of the center in 2012. This advertisement serves as notification consistent with King County Ordinance No. 17586 and King County Code Section 7.08.060.H.1 and H.2. To help cover increased costs, the Department is proposing to increase all rental fees by 10 percent. Comments should be submitted no later than August 31, 2019. Learn more .
