Clallam County Public Utility District leaders are ready to share their preliminary results of their feasibility study into the idea of bringing sewer service to the growing Carlsborg area.

PUD, in cooperation with Clallam County, launched the study earlier this winter to explore the costs and other issues for developing municipal sewer service for Carlsborg. That area has been struggling with ground water quality during its growth spurt in recent years, with an on-going problem of nitrate contamination in wells caused by bacterial contamination from sources like septic tanks. While that’s been addressed somewhat by the installation of more complex wastewater systems in recent years, both governments would still like to see if municipal sewer service would be a better long-term solution.

Coming up on February 22nd, PUD and county leaders will discuss their initial findings, including the possible layout and capacity of a sewer system for the Carlsborg Urban Growth Area, the options for using reclaimed water and cost estimates. Property owners are being invited to ask questions and comment at the meeting, and express written interest in participating in the project, although PUD says those comments aren’t commitments to receive, or not receive, sewer service if the system is ever built. The input is strictly to gauge feasibility.

That meeting will be at the Sequim Prairie Grange on Macleay Road, starting at 6pm with a presentation at 6:30.
