Kingston Sewage Treatment Plant

Kingston Waste Water Treatment Facility

The primary sources of wastewater to the Kingston Treatment Plant are domestic sewage from residential and light commercial activities in Kingston. The treatment plant effluent is discharged into Puget Sound approximately 1 mile from the shoreline at a depth of 165 feet below mean low water.

The treatment facility, completed in May 2005, is designed to treat an average daily flow of 292,000 gallons per day. This is a 95% increase in capacity from the previous facility, and will accommodate the growth in residential population for the next 20 years.

A new pipeline was added from W. Kingston Road to the facility, an extension of 4,000 feet. The site is located on 29 acres at the end of Norman Road. The effluent is piped from the plant to the beach at Appletree Cove and extends 5,315 feet into Puget Sound. The outfall system into the bay was unique in that it required the use of a barge with excavating bucket and divers to weld the pipe sections together.
