Wastewater Treatment Plants
King County’s wastewater treatment plants handle wastewater from homes and businesses. The treatment plants are located in Seattle and Renton in King County, and in the Bothell/Woodinville area in Snohomish County. Each of the treatment plants borders a natural area or park, providing a connection to the natural environment.
