Satsop Business Park gets attention for tunnel training


The tunnel training facility at the Satsop Business Park received some international recognition after being featured in the June and July edition of Tunnels & Tunnelling International.

The business park, originally designed as a nuclear power facility, includes a network of tunnels located 27 feet below the ground. The tunnels are actually water pipes, measuring 12 feet in diameter. In 2012, the business park converted the pipes into a tunnel training area that has been used by the Seattle Fire Department and the Northwest Laborers-Employers Training Trust.
