Pump Station Upgrade Work Begins in Downtown Kirkland

King County Kirkland Pump Station and Sewer Upgrade


In order to protect public health and the environment, the King County Wastewater Division is upgrading the Kirkland Pump Station and the sewers that lead in and out of the pump station to provide the required capacity to accommodate recent and projected growth in Kirkland.


Construction Activity Starts

This week, you will notice activity starting at the site. The contractor will be moving temporary construction offices into the staging area that has been established on Park Lane, between Main Street and Third Street. In addition to trailers/offices, this staging area will be used to store materials, equipment and provide room to support construction activities associated with the pump station upgrade.


The overall schedule includes upgrades to the pump station lasting through summer 2014. The forcemain work planned for Kirkland Avenue will last approximately three months and will be scheduled in spring 2012.
