Burbank utilities project completed
The $6.8 million project that included a sewer transmission system and water mains to serve the Burbank community has been completed. The multi-year installation was dedicated by school district and county officials, state legislators and Port District Commissioners during a celebratory September, 2015 event.
A key component of the improvements is the extension of a new sewer transmission system to serve the Burbank School District, the Port’s Industrial and Business Parks and neighboring communities.
The improvements moved forward when the Port reached an agreement with the City of Pasco to provide sewer treatment services. Port Commissioner Peter Swant says completion of the project will spur economic development in the Burbank area and within the 120 acre business park.
