Kittitas County, Washington: $12.65 Million


Annual flooding during significant rain and spring runoff events threatens public safety in Kittitas County because of the risk of the municipal solid waste, organic yard waste, recyclables, and moderate hazardous wastes handled by the waste transfer station spilling into the floodwater.

Project Description

This project will relocate the station out of the regulatory floodplain to avoid negative environmental resource impacts.
