Kirkland Emergency Sanitary Sewer Program (1999 to 2011)
Location: Kirkland, WA
Many Kirkland homes are still dependent on aged and failing septic systems. The City of Kirkland developed the Emergency Sewer Program in 1999 to provide long-term benefits of sanitary sewer and to address potentially hazardous septic situations. Otak helped City officials launch this highly successful program, and has since completed bi-annual projects from 1999 – 2009. The $1.5 million 2011 Program will include approximately 3,500 lineal feet of new sanitary sewer main with 55 new connections. Providing these connections to sanitary sewer enables residents to hook into the system when needed without expensive and disruptive delays.
