  4. Timeline

The former Kimberly Clark industrial wastewater treatment plant (KC WWTP) was acquired by the City of Everett with the intent that the site be repurposed to provide detention of urban stormwater and combined sewer flows to bring Puget Sound Outfalls (PSOs) 4 through 7 into regulatory compliance.  The existing KC WWTP will be integrated into the City’s wastewater system by converting the site infrastructure into a combined sewage storage facility and constructing new sewers to convey wastewater to and from the facility. The new facility, named the Port Gardner Storage Facility (PGSF), will be used to temporarily store combined sewer flows until the collection system has the available capacity to convey flows to the Everett Water Pollution Control Facility (WPCF).
