A Big Change to Gig Harbor

As of Wednesday, March 16, 2011, the outfall from Gig Harbor's Wastewater Treatment Plant will no longer discharge to Gig Harbor but will, instead discharge into Colvos Passage.  It should be fun to see how the water quality and critters in the Harbor react to the change.

If you're interested, join city officials and staff for the ceremonial valve turning on Wednesday, March 16. The event will celebrate the completion of the Wastewater Treatment Plant Outfall Extension Project. It will be held at the Bogue Viewing Platform, 8803 N. Harborview Dr. at 3 p.m.

The City of Gig Harbor began planning for this $6.1 million, four-phase project more than 10 years ago.
Since 2008, the construction for new outfall pipe included replacing the old 10-inch pipe with 24-inch high density polyethylene pipes.
