West Seatle power outage triggers wastewater overflow

An estimated 18,000 gallons of wastewater overflowed early today into Puget Sound near West Seattle’s Lowman Beach Park.

The 2 a.m. overflow, which lasted about 20 minutes, was caused when a power outage shut down a pumping station, according to the King County Department of Natural Resources..

The outage shut down the Murray Avenue Pump Station. Crews brought in a portable emergency generator to restore power, and plans call for a permanent generator at the pumping station, which directs wastewater from West Seattle toward the West Point Treatment Plant in the Magnolia neighborhood.
