January 15, 2014: Guess What’s Going into a New Holding Tank on Lake Washington?
Cities with beautiful reputations to maintain like Seattle, the "evergreen" city, don’t often talk publicly about problems like raw sewage overflowing into local water ways after heavy storms. But when solutions are underway such as a new "holding tank" on Lake Washington with real time controls and this and that, pride goes out the window. Two million of Seattle’s 154 million gallons of combined sewage and storm water overflow will now have a temporary home, one storm at a time.
