Followup: Saturday night Barton Pump Station overflow estimated at 50 gallons maximum

Saturday night, we told you about an overflow after a mechanical malfunction at the Barton Pump Station in Fauntleroy. This afternoon, King County estimates the overflow totaled “five to 50 gallons of wastewater.” Their news release adds, “Cleanup crews deployed Saturday evening did not find debris typically associated with a wastewater overflow, further confirming the incident’s minimal impact.” Water samples nearby “showed normal bacteria levels,” so they say area beaches will reopen once the Public Health Department says it’s OK.

  4. They didn’t know it was “only” 50 gallons on Saturday night. This is a followup, as linked above, to their announcement of the problem that night.
