Celebrating the employees who restored West Point  

On Aug. 10, King County Executive Dow Constantine joined Mark Isaacson, Director of the Wastewater Treatment Division, and employees at the West Point wastewater treatment plant for their annual summer potluck to celebrate their commitment and dedication to clean water. Employees worked around the clock to restore normal operations following the Feb. 9 flood at West Point, and the treatment plant is again meeting strict water quality standards.

People worked long hours, often in very challenging conditions during the restoration. Employees willingly stepped forward with a spirit of service that is truly inspiring.

“There’s no one in this entire region who is more interested in or committed to clean water than the people who are here at this picnic lunch today,” Executive Constantine said.
