Completed Spring 2017
King County has completed construction of an underground storage tank in the right-of-way in N.W. Blue Ridge Drive and Triton Drive N.W. This facility can store up to 380,000 gallons of untreated water when the North Beach Pump Station reaches maximum capacity.
The underground storage tank in the right-of-way in Northwest Blue Ridge Drive and Triton Drive Northwest stores peak flows when the North Beach Pump Station reaches maximum capacity. After storms have passed, an underground pump transfers stored flows to the pump station for conveyance to King County’s Carkeek Wet Weather Treatment Facility for transfer to West Point Treatment Plant or onsite treatment. The project includes an underground diversion structure (that conveys peak flows to the facility), and a new odor control and electrical facility on King County property.
