City of North Bend received the
Outstanding Wastewater Treatment Plant Award for 2017. The Department of
Ecology (DOE) commended the City on the superior performance of its wastewater
According to the letter from DOE,
the outstanding record of City of North Bend Wastewater Treatment Plant places
it among the top municipal wastewater treatment plants in Washington based on
effluent limits, submittals and overall plant compliance.
Mayor Ken Hearing presented a
plaque to representatives from the City’s Wastewater Treatment Plant during the
October 2nd Council Meeting.
“We are proud to receive this
high honor and I want to thank City staff who have worked tirelessly to ensure
that our water supply is more than adequate for our citizens and to accommodate
future growth,” Mayor Hearing said.
In order to maintain our current
license and add redundancy to our WWTP, we will be making a significant
investment in our Wastewater Treatment Plant.
One of our major projects will be a new building that will house our UV
disinfection system, upgraded electrical panels and our effluent pumping
station. This will also add a redundant
UV unit and replace the old pump house building that is failing.
Additionally, this project will
include the construction of a new clarifier and the rehabilitation of the
existing one. The third part of this
project will involve modifications and upgrades to one of our waste water pump
station. This pump station will have added capacity for bypass pumping and
receive modifications to its ”brain” which will allow for greater reliability
during power outages and high flow events. These projects will also add
capacity for future development.
These projects are anticipated to
begin in early 2019.
