Westpoint and wastewater with Guest: Chris Wilke from Puget Soundkeeper.

Come mix and mingle with the Sierra Club Seattle Group and learn more about what happened on February 9 when the Westpoint Sewage Treatment Plant at Discovery Park flooded, dumping over 180 million gallons of stormwater and sewage into Puget Sound, and about Seattle's Wastewater system.

Sierra Club hosts monthly happy hours showcasing speakers that discuss environmental topics of local interest. This month's topic is the February 9 failure of the Westpoint sewage treatment plant at Discovery Park, and Seattle's Wastewater system. You can learn more about the incident on King County's website at kingcounty.gov/depts/dnrp/wtd/response/incident-response.aspx

Puget Soundkeeper is a local non-profit who's mission is to protect and preserve the waters of Puget Sound. Soundkeeper staff and trained volunteers are on the water every week by boat and kayak, monitoring the health of the Sound and its tributaries. As a major environmental stakeholder, Soundkeeper actively engages government agencies and businesses working to regulate pollution discharges from sewage treatment plants, industrial facilities, construction sites, and municipalities. Soundkeeper also enforces the Clean Water Act of 1972, using the power granted to citizens to sue under provisions of the Act to bring egregious polluters into compliance with the law. You can learn more about Soundkeeper at pugetsoundkeeper.org.

We look forward to seeing you there!
