Barton Pump Station, Fauntleroy dock to be on generator power tomorrow

A new problem at the Barton Pump Station Upgrade Project site north of the Fauntleroy ferry dock, according to the King County Wastewater Treatment Division: “Jet grout” material (which is similar to concrete, we’re told) from the upgrade work has turned up in an underground transformer vault near the station, and has to be removed. While that removal work happens 7 am-7 pm tomorrow, Seattle City Light will cut power to both the pump station and ferry dock; the county says “two ‘Whisperwatt’ generators” will be in action to replace the cut-off power. In response to this announcement, we’ve asked a few followup questions, and will add the answers when we get them.
