Join us on 4/13, and Learn about Sewage in the Sound and the West Point Wastewater Disaster
On February 9th, the West Point Wastewater Treatment Plant at Discovery Park flooded, dumping over 180 million gallons of stormwater and sewage into Puget Sound.
This is an ongoing issue affecting the Puget Sound and its water quality.
Please join us on Thursday, April 13th, to hear more about West Point and Seattle's wastewater issues from Chris Wilke, the Executive Director of Puget Soundkeeper, and newly announced guest Sandra Kilroy, assistant director of Kind County Wastewater Treatment Division!!!
