Title:Brightwater Wastewater Treatment System: Built with the Environment in Mind
Document Date:08/01/2009
Description:This fact sheet discusses the building of one of the most sustainable wastewater treatment systems in the United States, the Brightwater Treatment System in King County, Washington. From the beginning, the Brightwater Team made a commitment to sustainability. The architects, engineers, and contractors working on the project have been dedicated to protecting natural resources, limiting the impacts of construction, and leading the way in the development of sustainable practices. Brightwater used four key sustainable practices, including using coal fly ash in concrete as a cement substitute; retaining excavated soils on site to visually screen wastewater processing areas; reusing materials to create salmon habitat and a reforestation area; and building a green on-site environmental education and community center.
