STORM AFTERMATH: Overflow south of Alki Point

5:08 PM: If you’re out for a walk tonight and notice signs south of Alki Point – the King County Wastewater Treatment Division now says its overflow during the storm was from the Alki Point treatment facility across from Constellation Park, not a pump station. No word yet how much of an overflow, but KCWTD says “the wastewater is disinfected between 63rd and Alki, so we aren’t expecting anything from the water quality samples.” They posted signage just to be on the safe side. Meantime, Seattle Public Utilities says one of its new gauges, at High Point, measured the most rain during the 24-hour peak of the storm – 2.57 inches.

ADDED FRIDAY MORNING: The county finally has a total – “250,000 gallons of disinfected flow” in this spill.

    Is that “Rocky Beach”? I’m guessing those aren’t rocks.

Sorry, comment time is over.
