Sewage Treatment Plant

Everett, WA: (Dec-03-07) Snohomish County brought charges against King County in 2005, over the impact it would face having King County's sewage treatment plant built in Maltby. As part of a settlement reached, Snohomish County mediated a deal in which King County agreed to payout $70 million to resolve litigation. The settlement agreement stipulated that the money must be spent to improve parks, walkways and roads around Maltby. Snohomish County planners approved King County's final Brightwater construction permit in November 2007, and work is under way on many pieces of the $1.7 billion sewage treatment plant. A tunnel boring machine is digging from Bothell to Maltby as it carves part of the 13-mile path for wastewater pipes leading to Puget Sound.

Recently, officials claimed that Snohomish County is close to buying its first parkland. The Snohomish County Council has approved proposals to spend more than $800,000 to buy 11 acres of wooded properties on Highway 9 using some of the settlement money. The deals are scheduled to close in December 2007. [HERALD NET: SEWAGE PLANT]
