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. When construction of the sewer system is completed, the Irondale & Port Hadlock UGA will be able to support affordable housing, medical facilities, higher density multifamily residences, senior housing, 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 facility.
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.
