Collection System Repair & Replacement Project
The Clallam Bay-Sekiu Sewer System recieves significant inflow/infiltration of water in the system which leads to regular sewage overflow events. During the development of the General Sewer and Wastewater Facilities Plan (PDF) in 2018, the County prioritized pipe repair and manhole replacement projects that should greatly reduce or eliminate these events. The County was selected to receive a $6.2 million grant/loan package from the Department of Ecology to complete the repair projects in 2020-2023. View Project Maps (PDF) and estimated timeline; find information on the Project Alternatives (PDF), including a comparative cost analysis, considered by the County.
