From staff reports:
The Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission announced that Dash Point State Park will close for about eight months, beginning Sept. 7, to complete construction of a new sewer system.
The park is scheduled to reopen in May 2011. The park, located on Dash Point Road in Federal Way, has experienced temporary closures due to sewer system failures, according to the commission. The existing sewer consists of a combination of septic tanks, pump stations, force mains and septic drain fields that periodically fail, causing temporary closures. The sewer system will be rebuilt with $3.4 million from the 2009-2011 capitol budget, according to the commission.
