The next phase of pre-construction work is under way this week across the street from Lowman Beach Park – the county has begun demolition of the six residential buildings vacated more than a year ago on the inland side of Beach Drive, where an underground storage tank will be built to reduce combined-sewer overflows from the Murray Pump Station across the street. The county began “deconstruction” and salvage work weeks ago (with a requirement that “at least 25 percent of the materials from the site” be salvaged, and now has brought in the heavy equipment to tear down what remains of the former residences. As announced by King County at last month’s Morgan Community Association meeting, “After the buildings are down, the contractor will fill in the foundations with soil to ensure the site remains stable and safe until facility construction begins later this year.”
