Prestigious museum recognizes West Point Treatment Plant

August 31st, 2010 · 46 Comments

The King County News Blog reports that the sculpture and landscaping that surrounds the West Point Treatment Plant in Discovery Park has earned a place in the National Art Collection of the Smithsonian Institute in Washington DC.

West Point’s art and landscaping was installed in the 1990s as a mitigation measure for the plant’s federally-mandated upgrade to more stringent secondary treatment standards.

Prior to the upgrade, the plant that treats about 133 million gallons of sewage each day, was a blight on Discovery Park’s prime beachfront.  Now it is  screened by 7,000 feet of sculptured concrete walls and walking paths. 

The Smithsonian describes the project this way:  Over 7,000 feet of sinuous sculpted walls screen the sewage treatment plant for the visitors of Discovery Park.  The multi-level wall defines the industrial structures imagery, the park walkways, the wetlands and the pedestrian bridge.

    If you’re still on the fence: grab your favorite earphones, head down to a Best Buy and ask to plug them into a Zune then an iPod and see which one sounds better to you, and which interface makes you smile more. Then you’ll know which is right for you.
