Report shows piping Carlsborg sewage to Sequim still best plan

April 30th, 2014 - 5:23am

(Port Angeles) Clallam County is almost ready to submit a finalized version of their Carlsborg Sewer Project Plan to the Department of Ecology.

In this week's work session, county officials saw the two cost options that compared the pros and cons of building a Carlsborg sewage facility versus utilizing the existing sewage treatment facility in Sequim.

Of the two choices, the Sequim option is far cheaper. Short term costs over a 14-year period are about $4.5 million dollars cheaper, while long term costs taken over a 20-year period after the initial cost years, add another $9.5 million dollars in savings.

Administrative director of public works for Clallam County, Bob Martin says the Department of Ecology could take up to 90 days to review the proposal, but it is expected that the actual wait may be closer to 30 days before the proposal is approved.

For the next 20 years, the sewer charge is estimated at about $68-dollars per month for sewer customers.
