Meeting tonight: King Co. plan for sewage overflows

Tonight King County is hosting a public informational briefing at REI on proposed updates to the county plan for managing combined sewer overflows. The meeting will run from 6:30 to 8 p.m.

We are talking some $711 million in public money for projects to contain occasional overflows of storm water mixed with dilute amounts of untreated raw sewage into Puget Sound.

The county has been working to contain these overflows with success for decades and is now attacking the last 1 percent — and most expensive phase — of its program. Now is the chance to learn about and be heard on the plan.

The King County Council will be at work on updates to the plan which King County Executive Dow Constantine intends to submit to the council in March for consideration and adoption by August.

There is free parking in the REI store garage from 6:15 to 8 p.m. for meeting attenders.

The store is located at 222 Yale Ave. N., Seattle.
