City moving forward on landfill bluff stabilization project

February 14th, 2013 - 6:21am

(Port Angeles) -- City of Port Angeles staff meet with state and federal officials today about what's needed to stabilize a bluff at the city's old landfill site.

The city must fix the issue to keep tons of garbage from potentially falling out and into the Strait of Juan de Fuca.

The city has hired a consultant that has come up with five recommendations to deal with a seawall in the area. Right now, the city recommends an option that would cost up to $20 million dollars to move some of the old garbage and make improvements to the seawall.

But the city also needs to find out what state and federal permits will be needed to proceed.

City staff will make another presentation March fifth to the city council on the project. The council is expected to make a final decision March 19th.
