When we were designing the Brightwater Treatment Plant a decade ago, people specifically asked us to create a meaningful community gathering space focused on education and environmental stewardship.
Through grant funding and innovative partnerships with schools and nonprofit organizations, we built the LEED Platinum Brightwater Center. Today, more than 7,000 students and community members participate in a variety of hands-on environmental learning programs we’re able to offer free of charge, thanks to continued support from partner organizations such as IslandWood.
King County is honored to have earned WateReuse Association‘s “Public Education Program of the Year” award. Take a few minutes to learn about our work.
