Study Session Summary: 

Staff from the Department of Public Works and the Department of Environmental Services presented to the Council on the status of the Water Pollution Control Plant (WPCP) construction. Staff began by outlining the planning processes undertaken over the last decade, including condition assessments, strategic infrastructure planning and, ultimately the Master Plan, finished in 2016. After discussing possible opportunities for increased recycled water production, staff reported on the phased implementation of the WPCP replacement and the associated environmental, permitting, financing, and public outreach efforts associated with it. Finally, staff reported on the status of current projects, such as the Primary Project (Package 1 & 2), and outlined next steps for the Council.


Council questions initially centered around specific projects and questions for which details were still being worked out by staff, as well as federal funding, flood protection, FOG (fats, oils, & grease) processing, and the flexibility of the planning process.



Vice Mayor Larsson adjourned the meeting at 5:49 p.m.
