Puget Sound Energy
Sammamish to Renton, Washington
The Watershed Company has provided environmental services in support of Puget Sound Energy’s (PSE) effort to reinforce the backbone of the Eastside’s transmission system amid increasing electrical demands and population growth. The project, called “Energize Eastside,” will rebuild an existing substation and upgrade approximately 18 miles of existing transmission lines across five Puget Sound jurisdictions. With Watershed’s help, PSE has been able to understand and account for the project’s various environmental impacts and develop solutions that protect the area’s critical areas and meet its respective municipal requirements across both public and private properties.
