Executive Constantine celebrates West Point 50th birthday with employees

On Aug. 18, King County Executive Dow Constantine joined Christie True, Director of the Department of Natural Resources and Parks, and Wastewater Treatment Division employees, former employees and retirees, to celebrate the West Point Treatment Plant’s 50th birthday.

West Point, located next to Discovery Park in Seattle, has been helping protect Puget Sound for 50 years, and treats wastewater from homes and businesses in Seattle, Shoreline, north Lake Washington, north King County and parts of south Snohomish County.

“We should be proud that we run such a clean sewage treatment plant that people can actually have the appetite to have a barbeque and picnic right in the middle of it,” Executive Constantine joked at the celebration.
