What’s Proposed
The city of Issaquah’s Public Works Department (the applicant) proposes to construct a drinking water booster pump station and approximately 8,000 linear feet of water-related water transmission lines at 614 1st Avenue NE, Issaquah, WA 98027 (see map). This project would provide redundant facilities to move drinking water to the Issaquah Highlands, including Swedish Hospital, which serves as a critical care facility, as well as over 5,000 residents. Currently, there is only one water source to the Issaquah Highlands. For more information, go to issaquahwa.gov/LocalProject.

Why Engage?
Public input from this meeting will be used to finalize the critical area studies for this project. A meeting summary will also be provided to the city’s Environmental Board for its consideration related to future code changes. The city’s decision, once rendered, is appealable.
