The public is invited to an open house to get updates on design plans for King County’s Fremont Siphon Replacement Project tonight (Tuesday, March 26),from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Fremont Public Library, 731 N 35th St., Seattle. From King County’s webpage:

At a workshop last January, King County sought community input on the design of a new facility that will be built in Fremont as part of a project to replace aging sewer lines beneath the Lake Washington Ship Canal.  Project staff will present two design options for the Fremont site and discuss how community input shaped concepts around landscaping, architecture and other site elements. People are invited to share their views on the new design options. Staff will also be available to answer questions and talk about other project-related plans and schedules.

The Fremont Siphon Replacement project is currently in design, with construction expected to start around mid-2014.

King County also operates the Ballard and Montlake Siphons, which run beneath the Ship Canal and convey waste water from North Seattle to the West Point Treatment Plant in Discovery Park. For more info click here, or to arrange accommodations for people with disabilities at the open house, please contact Adair Muth at 206-263-7319 or 711 TTY Relay.
