Abstract:

King County along with City of Seattle and the Seattle-King County Health Department developed a joint agency program for notifying the public of combined sewer overflows. The program was developed to meet the requirement of public notification as part of the Environmental Protection Agency's Nine Minimum Controls. This approach included posting warning signs at over 100 CSO locations, developing a website, information line, brochure, fact sheet, and other materials.
