Council approves Ship Canal Water Quality Project

The City Council approved the proposal for the Ship Canal Water Quality Project. The project upgrades the combined stormwater/sewer system to reduce the instances of “combined sewer outflow” into the Ship Canal during heavy rainfall. This is required as per a consent agreement with the EPA.

The project’s costs are split 65%/35% with King County.

The Council approved it 8-0  (Council member Bagshaw was absent).
