McMicken Heights Groundwater Treatment Plant, Highline Water District
To further control its water supply and rates, the Highline Water District added another production well. The iron and manganese-laden production well was only the first of a myriad of challenges. Faced with land swap negotiations, permitting hoops, unforeseen delays, and numerous construction setbacks throughout the project, the District finally has a fully automated, waste-minimizing, water treatment plant and is a step closer to being in full water supply control.
