Description The town of Washtucna, like most small towns, struggles to maintain their infrastructure and keep up with changing environmental regulations, while preserving affordable utility rates for their community. When it was discovered that their wastewater treatment system was leaking and possibly impacting their ground water, they worked with Ecology and applied to various funding sources until they obtained the funding they needed to build a new wastewater treatment plant.
The mission of the Department of Ecology is to protect, preserve, and enhance Washington’s environment. To help us meet that goal, please consider the environment before you print or request a copy.
