Dillingham City Council Considers Pricey Fix to Wastewater Treatment Facility

May 28, 2013

Some work is underway on what could become a roughly $8 million dollar, several year plan to bring the facility into compliance with the DEC and EPA.

The City of Dillingham’s Water Water Treatment Plant is out of compliance with the Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation, and DEC may soon start pressing the issue via potentially hefty fines. The Dillingham City Council is considering what could be a several year, $8 million dollar investment to rehab the facility, and the Council heard more about that plan from CH2M Hill last Thursday night. The Council will consider whether or not to adopt the CH2M Hill plan at their June 27 meeting.
