MALTBY -- People are invited to an open house at the Brightwater Center on Saturday to learn about the facility through treatment plant tours, exhibits and nature walks.
The open house is scheduled from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at 22509 Highway 9 SE, Woodinville. The event is free.
People can go on guided walks through Brightwater's forest and wetland areas, watch the environmental documentary "Addicted to Plastic" and tour the plant. People can also bring unwanted electronic equipment such as computers and cell phones for recycling.
Registration is required for the treatment plant tours. Children must be at least 9 years old to participate. Sturdy close-toed shoes are required. To register online, go to green.kingcounty.gov/wastewater-education/apptrequest.aspx.
The Brightwater Center is one of the largest public works projects ever undertaken in Snohomish County. It took 14 years to build and cost $1.8 billion. The plant treats millions of gallons of water that runs through toilets, bathtubs and sinks from tens of thousands of homes and businesses in south Snohomish and north King counties.
A major part of the facility is a 13-mile tunnel that runs from the Maltby plant along Highway 9 to Point Wells at the Snohomish-King county line.
For more information or to request accommodations for people with disabilities at the open house, contact Kristin Covey at 206-263-9412, 711 TTY Relay, or kristin.covey@kingcounty.gov.
People can also learn more about Brightwater Center on the web at www.kingcounty.gov/brightwatercenter.
