West Point Treatment Plant dumps raw sewage into Sound

Published by under Shilshole Neighbors

A Seattle City Light power surge and outage that affected more than 10,000 customers in Seattle led to a brief emergency bypass at the West Point Treatment Plant early Friday morning, July 19.

The power disruption caused pumping throughout the wastewater treatment plant to shut down. Workers acted swiftly to prevent flooding in the plant by sending an estimated 3 million gallons of storm water mixed with wastewater into Puget Sound through an emergency outfall pipe for 27 minutes, and normal operations were quickly restored.
