County says Alki-area sewer-pipe project almost done

November 23, 2012 at 2:01 pm | In Utilities, West Seattle news | 1 Comment

Neighbors on and near 62nd SW south of Admiral Way will have something to be thankful for next week – the expected end of work on a weeks-long project to re-line a county sewer pipe, which has involved night work and has even required some neighbors to spend “a few nights in hotels,” says Doug Marsano from the county Wastewater Treatment District. He reports that the pipe lining itself is done, and now the final phase includes re-lining the manholes along the line. Crews aren’t working during the holiday weekend but are expected to be back on the job next week.

  1. This is “semi” good news since Doug told us LAST week that they were lining the manholes when I talked to him on the phone. How LONG can it take??!!
    Still would like to know WHY King Cty allowed the subcontractor InsituForm to do this project in the wettest month of the year instead of in July (as explained by KC Wasterwater Treatment Div. spokesman, David Freed) when we had 81 days of DRY weather (mandatory for installing the lining)?? Seems like this would be a priority project for KC & the subcontractor? It was delayed several times by InsituForm according to Mr. Freed.
    Also, who is in charge of all the “No Parking” signs? They are strewn all about Beach DR SW near corner w/Spokane St. & on 62nd.
