King County's Kirkland Pump Station Nearing Completion

News Release 

The King County Wastewater Treatment Division is nearing completion on upgrades to the 40‐year‐old Kirkland Pump Station. 

Upgrades increase capacity, ensure safe and reliable operations and meet current seismic, noise, and odor control standards. Thank you for your patience.

The new pump station has been operational, pumping wastewater, since July, 2013.

Since that date, the project team has been busy removing outdated equipment and making final improvements to both the interior and exterior of the pump station.
