Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Water Management in the '90s: A Time for Innovation


As design of the West Point plant neared completion, the municipality of Seattle addressed construction of the facilities. The challenge was to build a complex wastewater treatment plant on a peninsula in a park with limited access. This paper describes some of the strategies used during construction of the West Point plant by focusing on preconstruction activities and on two major contracts: the site preparation and renovation contracts.
