The City of Wapato is upgrading its Wastewater Treatment Plant. The new plant will use the membrane biological reactor (MBR) process in order to meet the discharge permit requirements. The construction cost is approximately $7.5 million and total project cost is approximately $10 million. The project has been advertised for bid and bid open date will be July 24, 2014. Construction will start in September 2014 and the new plant will be in full operation in December 2015. For more information about the wastewater treatment plant project, contact City Hall.
The City is constructing a new picnic shelter in Lions Park for the benefit and enjoyment of the citizens. The new picnic shelter is located on the east side of the swimming pool and south side of the Public Works Service Center. The shelter is designed by city staff and built by Job Corps in order to save money. Hopefully the shelter will be ready for use in July, 2014.
If a company, organization, family or individual is interested in sponsoring the picnic shelter, please contact the City Hall or the Mayor.
