Weddings at Brightwater Stories Go Global

Wastewater Treatment Division recently had great success getting information out about its Brightwater Treatment Plant when a story posted on its Facebook page about weddings at Brightwater went viral.

Weddings at BrightwaterA KIRO-7 story about wedding availability at Brightwater’s Environmental Education and Community Center led to coverage from FOX News, Huffington Post,, and newspaper websites galore including the Washington Post, New York Daily News, the UK Daily Mail, the Times of Malta and the Irish Examiner. WTD was even interviewed for A3 Radio’s morning show in Melbourne, Australia!

The context was playful but informative, and gave the Brightwater facility tremendous visibility for many of the things it does: great use of space, the ability for a county facility to generate revenue to support free educational programming, and the coolness factor of a sewage plant operating as a “zero odor” facility.
