Wastewater spill at Richmond Beach pump station Monday

Tuesday, February 5, 2019

King County Wastewater Treatment workers responded quickly when a power outage during stormy conditions in the February 4 storm caused a wastewater spill at the Richmond Beach Pump Station.

About 19,400 gallons of wastewater spilled into Puget Sound from the pump station when the power outage occurred at about 9:02am on Monday, February 4, 2019. 

A King County wastewater operator responding to the outage was able to swiftly reset pump operations.

King County reported the overflow to health and regulatory agencies and will initiate beach monitoring near the pump station, which is located at 2740 NW 198th St.
