Established in 1852, King County is home to more than two million people, making it the 12th most populous county in the United States. Located in Washington State in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, King County stretches from the shores of the Salish Sea to the peaks of the Cascade Range.

King County Executive Dow Constantine today transmitted a $600 million spending plan to the King County Council, funded in part by the American Rescue Plan. Executive Constantine’s priorities include continuing the public health response and increasing vaccinations; community supports and anti-racist-work; economic recovery with a new program that promotes access to jobs and housing supports.
King County Executive Dow Constantine released the following statement on the $1.74 billion Harborview Medical Center bond measure after King County Elections posted that it was passing by 77 percent of the vote in early returns.
"While there are still many votes to be counted, I thank the voters of King County for their support for Harborview Medical Center. These investments will ensure that our region continues to be the best place in the country to receive emergency medical care, and needed seismic upgrades will protect the lives of patients, employees, and visitors to Harborview. Besides helping people with behavioral health needs and better preparing the region to fight pandemics, the measure creates thousands of family-wage construction jobs at a time when our region needs them the most.
"Every generation has stepped up to support Harborview Medical Center. I am proud that this generation is no different."
King County is in the process of designing a new recycling and garbage transfer station to be built in Algona that will replace the 1960s-era Algona Transfer Station. The new station will offer a full array of recycling services, hazardous waste disposal for households and qualifying business, sustainable building features, offsite wetlands improvements, on-site creek enhancements, public art, and other community benefits. King County will keep the existing Algona Transfer Station open throughout construction of the new facility.

The Georgetown Wet Weather Treatment Station Project includes the construction of a combined sewer overflow (CSO) wet weather treatment station, related pipes and a new outfall structure to release the treated water into the Duwamish River. When constructed, the station can treat up to 70 million gallons of combined rain and wastewater a day that would otherwise have discharged directly to the Duwamish without treatment during storm events. King County began on-site work in April 2017 and expects to finish construction in 2022.
King County’s Georgetown Wet Weather Treatment Station earned the coveted “Platinum” rating from the Institute for Sustainable Infrastructure’s Envision rating system. This is the first Platinum-awarded Envision project in Washington and recognizes the County’s commitment to sustainable communities and the environment.
The permanent financing for this project will be provided by a combination of a loan from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency through the Water Infrastructure Finance and Innovation Act (WIFIA), program State Revolving Fund loans, and the proceeds of bonds secured by a pledge of net sewer revenues. Interim financing ahead of certain of these permanent financing sources is being provided by the Commercial Paper Program.
