The Chelan City Council has approved moving ahead with the sewer mainline replacement project on State Route 150. At its meeting Monday, the Council authorized Mayor Bob Goedde to finalize and execute the agreement with RH2 Engineering for the project. The project includes designing a new section of sewer main and transition between the city's 21-inch force main and 16-inch gravity sewer pipe at the east end of the city; permitting the project, and other services during the bidding process. It does not include the actual construction of the sewer mainline. One thing Councilman Peter Jamtgaard wanted to know from Public Works Director Jake Youngren was whether the new mainline would be able to handle future growth in the area:
The cost of what is being called “Task Authorization Number 13” with RH2 is a little more than 50-thousand dollars; design of the mainline project is planned for this spring and summer, with construction planned for 2024.
