We're Up and Running!

On November 29, we celebrated completion of the Clean Water Facility at our ribbon cutting ceremony. During the event we not only cut the ribbon, we also took the final step to make the facility fully operational by directing effluent flows out to Oak Harbor Bay. The new facility is so state-of-the-art that all we had to do was press a button on a tablet, no wrench required! Check out our YouTube page for speeches from Mayor Severns and our project partners.

Thank you to everyone who joined us to help celebrate, including City Councilmembers, City staff, our Clean Water Facility operators, the project team, project partners, and members of the community. Speakers at the event included Mayor Bob Severns, Senator Barbara Bailey, 10th District Representative Norma Smith and representatives from our project partners including the Swinomish Indian Tribal Community, Environmental Protection Agency, Washington State Department of Ecology, and Puget Sound Partnership.
