Meet SPU Drainage and Wastewater South Operations Center Team
The City of Seattle has purchased property at 4500 W Marginal Way SW for use as Seattle Public Utilities’ (SPU) Drainage and Wastewater South Operations Center (SOC). The facility will be home to some of SPU’s Drainage and Wastewater field employees, work vehicles and equipment storage. These field employees clean and repair the City’s sewer and drainage systems, investigate waterway pollution, provide emergency response to storm events and natural disasters, and more.
As a nearby neighbor, SPU wanted you to be among the first to learn about the proposed building improvements and SPU’s planned use of the building. Join SPU Project Manager and staff at the Highland Park Action Committee Meeting on Oct. 25 to hear more and ask any questions you have about their future building on W Marginal Way SW.
Meet Seattle City Light’s Advanced Metering Program Team
City Light is excited to announce that advanced meters are the new meter standard for City Light’s service territory. In October 2016, City Light started the installation of advanced meters on new residential and small commercial construction projects under normal business operations. The majority of residential and commercial customers will begin receiving new meters in the summer of 2017. This is an incremental approach, with benefits realized` once the entire system is installed by 2019. Customers who do not wish to receive the benefits of an advanced meter can choose to opt out.
