About the project
Sewer service will be extended to a 370-acre area. A new pump station will be installed at the intersection of 182nd Street East and 28th Avenue East. The pump station will move flows up and out of the basin and into the nearby gravity sewer system. Approximately 2,750 feet of force main will be installed in the public right-of-way west of the pump station. Approximately 3,800 feet of gravity sewer will be installed east of the pump station along 182nd Street East and 38th Avenue East ending at 180th Street East.
This project supports the Pierce County Centers and Corridors initiative promoting compact communities built around major roadways. The project supports development along the 176th Street East corridor. This project will run simultaneously with the Military Road Interceptor project.
