Abstract: The West Point Wastewater treatment plant in Seattle sits on a small parcel of land that juts out into Puget Sound. In 1984, controversy erupted when Seattle Metro recognized that West Point would need to be upgraded to provide secondary treatment to reduce pollutants in the Sound. The design team at Metro has produced a design-construction plan to enhance the park while expanding the plant.
