Land acquisition and relocation services
In planning its facilities, the King County Wastewater Treatment Division needs to acquire real property and easements for many of its projects and programs.
King County Wastewater Treatment Division strives to be a good neighbor and has developed an acquisition and relocation process that is fair and equitable.
We are committed to working with property owners, businesses, tenants, and individuals to minimize any disruption or inconvenience. We seek to reach cooperative settlements whenever possible. We follow applicable County, state, and federal policies, laws, and regulations when acquiring property and relocating residents.
The WTD Residential Relocation Program is a set of uniform policies and procedures designed to help minimize any hardships property owners, tenants, and individuals who occupy such real property may experience as a result of moving.
Residents should contact the Regulatory Compliance and Land Acquisition Services staff with questions.
