Brightwater Center is located near Bothell and Woodinville in Snohomish County
No soil was hauled away, instead large mounds were designed to block less pleasant views and added character to the natural areas; saving money and reducing green house gas
The community gathering spaces at Brightwater Center will provide meeting spaces for community groups, conferences, business meetings, weddings and other special events. The community center has a large meeting space that can accommodate up to 250 people and can be broken down into three smaller configurations. Amenities include an exhibit hall, kitchen facilities, a resource library, private dressing room and ample parking.

Vacuum Station Owned and maintained by the City of Carnation The system consists of about 11 miles of vacuum sewer pipe, five main vacuum sewer trunk lines, a single vacuum station, and about 400 vacuum valve pits.

Snohomish CSO Pumping Station is made with contrasting bricks and decorated with steel sculptures of various fish species found in the Snohomish River
The pump station was built as part of a settlement between the city and Puget Soundkeeper Alliance, which sued the city under the federal Clean Water Act in 2003 because of the number of raw sewage overflows spilling into the Snohomish River each year
The pump station carries sewage and storm water in new separated pipes to the city’s wastewater plant for treatment. This will prevent illegal amounts of raw sewage from spilling into the Snohomish River during heavy rains. Before, both flowed through the same pipes in the historic part of the city and during heavy rain events raw sewage would overflow and enter the river untreated. The Snohomish River eventually drains into Puget Sound, and the health of the Sound is declining. The quality of the Snohomish River is one small but important part of the larger health issues of the Sound.
The project was made possible in large part by a state grant of $5.4 million, as well as a $1 million state Department of Ecology storm water grant. This was approximately 80% of the cost.
The city’s long-term plan is to get out of the sewage business. It is currently working on building a $40 million, five-mile wastewater pipeline to Everett’s sewage plant. The city is in talks with Everett officials to make that happen.
