Story

People with questions about King County’s Eastgate Interceptor Pipeline Rehabilitation Project are invited to an open house on Monday, March 12, from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Lake Hills Library, 15590 Lake Hills Boulevard in Bellevue. 

The project is needed to upgrade two 2,400-foot-long sewer lines in service since the early 1960s, and to address corrosion which could cause the pipelines to deteriorate. 

People will be able to meet project staff, and learn how the construction will affect some areas of Lake Hills Greenbelt Park, including those used for community gardens and recreation. Construction is scheduled to begin in April and take nine months to complete. King County and its contractor will work with park users and the City of Bellevue to minimize inconvenience from the project, and to restore areas affected by the construction. 

The Eastgate Interceptor pipeline is a part of King County’s regional wastewater system. Pipelines carry sewage (wastewater) from homes and businesses in the area to King County’s South Plant in Renton for treatment. 

Additional information about the project is available on the project website or by calling King County community services planner David Freed at 206-263-9453.
