Congrats to the following 2022 award winners!

2023 LOCEA Award in the Water Resources Category: Georgetown Wet Weather Treatment Station

In 2013, King County retained a Jacobs-led team to deliver the Georgetown Wet Weather Treatment Station (WWTS) project to control two existing combined sewer overflows (CSOs) into the Lower Duwamish Waterway. The Georgetown WWTS is a satellite treatment facility that will operate an average 20 times per year, processing about 69 million gallons of wastewater annually. This is the first new CSO treatment facility implemented under the County’s CSO Consent Decree. Jacobs and King County successfully met Consent Decree requirements, including submittal of a Facility Plan ahead of the December 2015 milestone. Substantial completion was achieved in 2022.

2023 LOCEA Award in the Water Resources Category: I-5 and SR11 Padden Creek Fish Passage
