The community is invited to join Seattle Public Utilities (SPU) for a public meeting on Combined Sewer Overflow (CSO) and Lake Washington this Thur., May 26, 6 to 7:30 pm, at Rainier Beach Library (9125 Rainier Ave. S.). From SPU:
During heavy rains, the combination of stormwater and sewage may exceed the capacity of the system and overflow, causing a Combined Sewer Overflow (CSO). Reducing CSOs will protect Lake Washington and make sure Seattle complies with federal and state water quality regulations.
SPU has identified potential CSO reduction projects in your area, including upgrading an existing Pump Station near Pritchard Island Beach Park and constructing a new sewer pipe along 52nd Avenue South & South Henderson Street. Construction of these projects
is planned to begin in 2013- 2014.
The meeting will provide additional information and gives you the opportunity to ask questions. More.
