Description In 1981, studies determined that effluent from the Metro-Renton wastewater treatment plant impacted the lower Green-Duwamish River area. The effluent led to increased water temperature (though not enough to violate water quality standards), low dissolved oxygen, toxic levels of residual chlorine, and increased nutrients.
The mission of the Department of Ecology is to protect, preserve, and enhance Washington’s environment. To help us meet that goal, please consider the environment before you print or request a copy.
