BURBANK -- A proposal by the Port of Walla Walla to build a sewer treatment plant here will be the subject of a meeting Thursday.
Port officials will meet with state Department of Ecology representatives at 10 a.m. at the Walla Walla County Fire District 5 station, 460 Humorist Road.
Port Executive Director Jim Kuntz said this is a "kickoff meeting" with Ecology to discuss environmental issues and also look at how to finance the project.
The Port wants to build the plant and an associated pipeline system to serve Burbank Industrial Park. Although the industrial park would be the primary focus, the system would be designed to allow the neighborhoods in the area to hook up to the sewer network as well, Kuntz said.
