CARLSBORG, WA---Clallam County government and the Clallam County Public Utility District will host a public meeting Tuesday, August 14, on a proposed sewer system for the Carlsborg area.

The session will start at 6:30 p.m. in Greywolf School, 171 Carlsborg Road.

A presentation on the proposal will open the meeting followed by questions and answers until around 8 p.m.  Light refreshments will be served.

The presentation will include new information from a feasibility study performed since the last public meeting Feb. 22, including an analysis of connecting to Sequim’s wastewater system, revised boundaries of the initial service area, new cost estimates and next steps.

Septic failures that contribute to increasing nitrate contamination in groundwater, water-conservation issues, and a lack of urban services are major concerns for the Carlsborg urban growth area according to county and PUD officials.

Economic growth

On-site septic systems also limit the area’s economic development and growth, they say.

A wastewater treatment and water reuse system, officials say, could abate public health problems ease water shortages, and support economic development while mitigating environmental concerns.

Goals of the sewer feasibility study include: 

Further develop proposals for wastewater collection and treatment.

Consider how to reuse treated wastewater, which could protect groundwater quality, recharge the aquifer and augment stream flows during dry seasons.

Estimate project costs.

Recommend a boundary for an initial sewer service area within the Carlsborg area.
