Port Hadlock wastewater System
Jefferson County, WA is developing a sewer system for the Irondale & Port Hadlock Urban Growth Area (UGA) to provide wastewater treatment for local residents and businesses. The sewer system has been identified as a critical element for increased regional economic development and affordable housing. When construction of the sewer system is completed, the Irondale & Port Hadlock UGA will be able to develop to urban standards that will allow a higher density of multifamily residences, as well as commercial and industrial development.
As a result of input from the public and generous funding partners, Jefferson County has designed a shovel-ready sewer treatment plant.
The County is currently seeking the necessary funding to partially defray costs to the sewer users. Future work is dependent on funding availability.
The Sewer Advisory Group - made up of local residents, business owners, property owners, non-profits, and local government representatives - was instrumental in the initial phases of this project. They will reconvene in the future once the project receives funding.
