***FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE***

SEATTLE (Dec. 18, 2018) The Miller Hull Partnership, an international, award-winning architecture and planning firm, is proud to announce that the new Georgetown Wet Weather Treatment Station has received the Envision Platinum award from the Institute for Sustainable Infrastructure (ISI).

As the architect of record and in partnership with Signal Architecture + Research, the Georgetown Wet Weather Treatment Station (GWWTS) follows the West Campus Utility Plant at the University of Washington as the second project at Miller Hull to achieve Envision awards.

The GWWTS will include a combined sewer overflow (CSO) wet weather treatment station, which will release treated water into the Duwamish River. The station will be able to treat up to 70 million gallons of combined sewer runoff and wastewater per day, water that would otherwise have discharged directly into the river without treatment during storm events. Completion of the GWWTS is scheduled for 2022.

“We’ve worked closely with King County, the engineering team and key subconsultants to design a facility that serves the community as a wastewater treatment station, but also becomes a real community asset,” said Scott Wolf, partner-in-charge at Miller Hull and design lead on the project. “Our overarching design goal was to humanize large-scale infrastructure and demonstrate that these vital services and facilities can not only meet their functional and operational needs, but they can be both inspiring and dignified as well.”

The Envision program is a framework that includes 64 sustainability and resilience indicators called “credits,” organized around five categories: Quality of Life, Leadership, Resource Allocation, Natural World and Climate and Resilience.
