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!
