Recycled glass a work of art in Bothell

Post Time:Dec 08,2011Classify:Industry NewsView:267

A 65-foot odor-control stack at a sewage-pumping station in Bothell is a work of art thanks to 3,500 green glass water bottles that encircle it.


The King County Department of Natural Resources and Parks says "Verdi" by Christian Moeller uses recycled Pellegrino water bottles, representing water recycling.


It was erected Monday at the Brightwater Influent Pump Station in a Bothell business park and will be illuminated by spotlights.


Spokeswoman Annie Kolb-Nelson says the sculpture by Moeller, a UCLA design and media-arts professor, cost $450,000.


A total of $4.4 million was spent on art for the new sewage-treatment plant through the county's 1 Percent for Art program.


Work at the Woodinville sewage-treatment plant called Brightwater is completed, but work continues on its 13-mile outflow line.
