Jameson Building replacement
Wastewater Treatment Division (WTD) operations and projects
WTD operations staff remain on the job 24/7 to ensure the region’s wastewater treatment service continues. More information on how to report a problem you believe may be related to the County’s wastewater treatment system is available here: https://www.kingcounty.gov/depts/dnrp/wtd/response.aspx
The King County Wastewater Treatment Division remains committed to sharing information and gathering feedback from community members about its work and projects. WTD staff remain available to answer questions via email and phone during regular business hours. Project information lines remain available and are being monitored for ongoing construction projects.
During this time, King County Wastewater Treatment Division (WTD) operations staff and contractors remain on the job to ensure the region’s wastewater treatment service continues. Our construction projects are critical to our mission – treating wastewater to protect public health. Field work to inform design of the Jameson Building Replacement Project will continue. This project supports essential workers who build and operate WTD's West Section facilities. We will notify our neighbors when field work occurs outside the County's Jameson and ArcWeld properties.

King County Wastewater Treatment Division (WTD) is replacing buildings that house the West Section Offsite Facilities and North Satellite Construction Management employees. These buildings are located in the Interbay Industrial Area near Fisherman’s Terminal.
These workers build and maintain sewer infrastructure that serves about a 100-mile service area. Offsite crews maintain equipment and facilities that move wastewater from the service area to our West Point Treatment Plant . WTD’s Construction Management oversees contractors building pipes, pump stations, Wet Weather facilities, and regulator stations that support people in our growing region.
These two buildings have reached the end of their useful life and do not have room to support our workforce into the future. Limited space for work vehicles requires parking on WTD’s Ballard Siphon site nearby. King County’s team will design and build a sustainable, cost-effective facility that supports these essential employees with a functional, healthy workplace.
The Jameson building includes employee office space, a machine shop, and materials storage.
The ArcWeld building, a modified house, provides office space for some Construction Management employees.
King County is committed to the highest green building and sustainable development standards and strategies for King County-owned buildings and infrastructure. The Jameson Replacement Project will help meet green building goals in the County’s Strategic Climate Action Plan as one of 10 Living Building Challenge projects initiated by 2020. WTD recommends Petal Certification for this project. Watch for updates as the project team begins design in fall 2018!
King County WTD puts a premium on outreach to communities when we plan, design, and build projects. This project is no exception. Our employees are an important part of the project community. The new buildings need to support their work and provide a safe, healthy workplace where they can reach their potential.
The existing buildings are located in the Interbay Industrial area, where our neighbors include diverse industrial businesses. We will work closely with businesses in the area to identify ways to reduce impacts during construction and to make sure that our new facilities fit in the neighborhood and support the area’s future vision.
Let us hear from you!
- We value your input on the project design and look forward to working with the community to define design priorities later this year. There will be many ways to get involved over the life of the project.
- You can expect one-on-one outreach to directly impacted neighbors, neighborhood meetings, community group briefings and project updates.
