CSO Control Program reviews and plan updates
King County's CSO program issues two documents for a comprehensive review of program successes, updates, and future projects. The reviews and updates are done in approximately five-year intervals.
CSO Control Program Review
Program Reviews are submitted to the King County Executive and Council. The Program Review analyzes the need for CSO control, public involvement, and the relationship of the CSO control program to other county priorities. The control project schedule is verified and, if necessary, reprioritized based on any new information or data.
