Learn about clean water with King County Wastewater Treatment Division
We have gone virtual! The Education Team from King County Wastewater Treatment Division has turned our field trips, tours, and other programs into virtual experiences. For information, visit our virtual education offerings and resources.
The Wastewater Treatment Plants are currently operating as normal, 24/7. Following the guidance of Seattle-King County Public Health, all facility tours and in-person education events have been suspended and the Brightwater Center is closed until further notice. Please check back periodically for updates.

Flushable: wipes are not really flushable – they don’t break down and can cause expensive plumbing problems in your home and damage the sewer system. Put wipes in the trash. Learn more.
