Save Lowman Beach Park and Neighborhood

King County Wastewater Treatment Division (Washington State) (KCWTD) has "unilaterally" chosen three alternative sites for a major industrial project -- building at least a 1 million gallon underground tank for catching overflow wastewater during rain events to prevent such overflow from going into Puget Sound (as it does now).  We use the term "unilaterally" because, although KCWTD alleges it has conducted adequate community outreach and gathered input from the community, IT DID NOT prior to choosing the three alternatives.  Now, it wants the community to choose one of those three options that it has offered.  So far, we have not heard from anyone in West Seattle who supports any of the three alternatives. 

SIGN THIS PETITION TO REJECT ALL THREE OF THE ALTERNATIVES as clearly unacceptable, risky, dangerous, underbuilt, and clearly destructive to a treasured small neighborhood and park.  You can view the alternatives being proposed at Murray Pump Station Alternative Sites Chosen by KCWTD and at Turn Lowman Beach into a Utility Site?  Overflow Options Draw Ire.

This petition, again, should be signed if you wish to register your vote for REJECTING ALL THREE OF THE CURRENT KCWTD ALTERNATIVES FOR THE SITING OF THE PROPOSED 1 MILLION GALLON TANK AND ITS ABOVE GROUND AMENITIES.

The results of this petition will be used to work with our representatives at all city, county and state levels to move them in the right direction.  It may also be used for environmental, parks, and department of planning meetings that will take place if KCWTD continues down this road of forcing inadequate solutions on West Seattle neighborhoods.

Thank you for your kind consideration!

P.S. Children may sign this petition.  Children should have a voice and a vote in what happens to their neighborhoods and parks.
 
We, the undersigned, REJECT all of the alternatives that the King County Wastewater Treatment Division has chosen for siting and building at least a 1 million gallon Combined Sewage Overflow (CSO) tank in, on, and around Lowman Beach Park and its unique and treasured neighborhood.

Said alternatives that are unacceptable and any similar future alternatives that resemble the current ones that might have similar destructive and dangerous impacts on said neighborhood are also REJECTED. 

This does not mean that the undersigned does not believe in the necessity for protecting Puget Sound.  This does not mean that the undersigned would not accept and even support a different and better solution to the CSO problems in the West Seattle neighborhoods.  Said current alternatives rejected in their entirety by the undersigned can be viewed at Murray Pump Station Alternative Sites Chosen by KCWTD
