Controlling Lowman Beach sewer overflows: Open house Monday

Another community open house has just been announced for the ongoing process of designing the Combined Sewer Overflow-control project across from Lowman Beach Park, to include a million-gallon underground storage tank. This is one of two CSO-control projects King County is currently planning in West Seattle, and it’s known as the Murray project, after the pump station that’s beneath the park, and the “basin” that feeds it. This comes shortly after a round of test drilling to gather more data about geological conditions in the area (photo above). The open house is set for 6:30 pm next Monday (November 14th) at Fauntleroy Church (9140 California SW). From the county’s announcement:

During the meeting, project staff will discuss design themes and present conceptual drawings that were developed in response to the ideas community members shared at an all-day design workshop on Oct. 29. People are invited to review and comment on these early design plans, and to provide any additional feedback.

P.S. We recorded the project’s most recent open house, in October, on video, previously unpublished, in case you’re following closely and want to know what’s been said so far:

    that top floor apt, behind the crane, with picture window view of park, is where I spent my first Thanksgiving in Seattle; never could have guessed back then (13 yrs ago) that this would be turned into a sewer project

    It certainly stinks down there.

Sorry, comment time is over.
