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Since that date, the project team has been busy removing outdated equipment and making final improvements to both the interior and exterior of the pump station. Recently, crews have moved to improving portions of Park Lane. It is anticipated that Park Lane will be opened in April 2014 (ahead of schedule).
Final Pump Station and Park Lane Improvements
Over the last few months, crews have been busy:
Removing outdated pumps and equipment
Hauling a construction trailer and materials
Testing new equipment, including the standby generator
Finishing off Interior improvements
Improving the area in front of the pump station:
Installing fencing and art gates
Constructing a new roadway and sidewalk
Completing porous pavement panels and boxes for rain gardens
Just a few more months of construction! The final project elements include:

Finishing interior pump station improvements
Removing remaining construction trailers and project materials
Paving Park Lane between Main Street and Third Street
