Friday May 24, 2013 - Brightwater Facility Tour
As a follow up to the recent Brightwater Facility Project presentation and to celebrate national public works week, the Wastewater Committee is hosting a facility tour of Brightwater on Friday May 24th at 10:00 am to noon. After his well received presentation at our recent committee meeting, Gunars Sreibers, with the King County Wastewater Treatment Division and Brightwater Project Manager, graciously offered to follow up his presentation with a tour.
King County is nearing completion of a new wastewater treatment and collection called Brightwater to serve the growing needs of north King County and south Snohomish County. The Brightwater project entails the construction of a new 36 mgd membrane bioreactor treatment plant north of Woodinville in Snohomish County as well as an influent pumping station, 13 miles of conveyance tunnels and an outfall to Puget Sound at Point Wells. Planning for the $1.86 Billion project began in the late 1990's, site selection was completed in 2003, system design was completed in 2005 and construction began in 2006. The treatment plant began operation in September 2011 providing effluent of exceptional quality and meeting King County's commitment to odor free operation.
