Seattle Aquarium Ocean Pavilion - Construction Stormwater

seattle aquarium construction stormwater

The Seattle Aquarium expanded its footprint along the downtown waterfront between Pike Place Market and Piers 59 and 60. The new 50,000 square foot Ocean Pavilion sits adjacent to the existing aquarium. The main draw will be a 325,000 gallon warm-water tank with 6 foot long sharks and 6 foot wide sting rays that are native to the South Pacific.

WaterTectonics is working with the project’s General Contractor, Turner Construction, to provide both National Pollution Discharge Elimination System (NPDES), Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plans (SWPPP) and King County Industrial Waste (KCIW) permitting. WaterTectonics treated the construction site stormwater at 100 gallons per minute, using WaveIonics electrocoagulation (EC) technology in combination with carbon filtration polishing, in order to meet strict Administrative Order limits.
