EPA has given the Municipality of Metropolitan Seattle (METRO) a grant to plan wastewater treatment improvements for a 620 square mile area of the Lake Washington/Green River Basin. The resulting wastewater management plan addresses three issues: (1) The operating capacity of the Metro Renton treatment plant has been reached and needs expansion to accommodate future growth; (2) Increasing quantities of secondary effluent from the Renton plant are discharged into the Green/Duwamish River; (3) New development within the study area will be using on-site technologies and these systems have the potential to adversely affect water quality. EPA has prepared this draft EIS to make a decision on approval of the Metro wastewater management plan and to partially fund projects called for in the plan. Three elements are emphasized in this document: land use, costs, and water quality.
