Our agency and staff

Headquartered in downtown Seattle, the Wastewater Treatment Division is committed to protecting and improving water quality.

Our agency employs more than 700 people who plan, design, build, and operate treatment facilities. Our employees also enforce regulations to reduce harmful waste discharged to the system, and we educate the public and businesses on ways to protect water quality.

To our agency, success means clean water. It means honoring our legacy while keeping a promise to another generation that our beautiful environment will be there for them to enjoy.

It also means being accountable to our ratepayers and operating a well-managed agency.
