2. Battle Ground 92nd Ave Sewer Extension Project

Requested Amount: $2,000,000

Intended Recipient: City of Battle Ground

Intended Recipient Address: 109 SW 1st Street, Battle Ground, WA 98604

The city owns, operates, and maintains a sewer system network of 58 miles of gravity and pressure sewer lines along with 12 lift stations. As the city grows, this network must be extended and expanded to support new developments within city limits. The northwest quadrant of the city contains the last remaining large amounts of developable employment and residential land, but the existing sewer infrastructure is already near capacity which hinders additional development. Providing the necessary sewer infrastructure to these 595 acres of employment/industrial, commercial, and residential land will contribute to the economic recovery and long-term viability of the region. The city is seeking funding to complete design and construction for extending a parallel force main for an existing pump station and converting a second pump station to gravity flow to the new 92nd Avenue Pump Station, providing desperately needed additional capacity in the area to facilitate light industrial development.

3. Floating Intake for the City of Ilwaco’s Municipal Reservoir

Requested Amount: $1,500,000

Intended Recipient: City of Ilwaco

Intended Recipient Address: 102 Walberg Road, Chinook, WA 98614

This project will fund the floating intake system in Ilwaco’s municipal reservoir, which will allow the city to draw water from the ideal depth, stabilizing pH and minimizing iron and manganese levels. These updates will enable the city to reduce their treatment cost, lowering costs to ratepayers. By optimizing water quality, reducing chemical usage, and conserving water, investing in a floating intake system aligns with their commitment to environmental stewardship and cost-effective resource management. It would also secure reliable water access and ensure a sustainable water supply for the community’s current and future needs, including through drought.

4. Longview Dedicated Fill Line to Water Reservoir Project

Requested Amount: $3,000,000

Intended Recipient: City of Longview

Intended Recipient Address: 1525 Broadway Street, Longview, WA 98632

In 2013, the city switched its water source from the Cowlitz River to well water and opened its new Mint Farm Regional Water Treatment Plant. Instead of having a direct fill line, the system now had to charge the entire water distribution system to fill the Main Reservoir. This change in how the reservoir is filled has caused a multitude of unanticipated effects, including overflowing at the Mt. Solo Reservoir and sloshing of water in the distribution system. The project would install a dedicated fill line from the new Mint Farm Regional Water Treatment Plant to the Main Reservoir. Water then can be pumped to the Main Reservoir, then gravity fed to our main pressure zone. The Mt. Solo Reservoir would once again be filled from the Main Reservoir, eliminating the potential of overflows and “cloudy” water complaints.

5. Veterans Housing and Resource Center

Requested Amount: $1,000,000

Intended Recipient: City of Raymond

Intended Recipient Address: 230 2nd Street, Raymond, WA 98577

This project involves the demolition and reconstruction of the American Legion Building in downtown Raymond. Because of its deteriorating condition, a new two-story building will replace the current 100-year-old building. The ground floor will include residential apartments and a Resource Center with offices for WSU Extension, Pacific County Health and Human Services (including a Veterans Service Officer), the Coastal Community Action Program, and Pacific County Voices Uniting. There will also be a Legion club area and a shared community room and commercial kitchen. The second floor will include 14 additional studio and one-bedroom units with priority for veterans. Four of the units will be for formerly homeless households earning less than 30% AMI; the remaining units will be for households earning up to 60% AMI. This project addresses housing, social services, and economic development needs in Pacific County.

6. Kennedy Farms Well Project

Requested Amount: $1,500,000

Intended Recipient: City of Ridgefield

Intended Recipient Address: 230 Pioneer Street, Ridgefield, WA 98642

The Kennedy Well project will provide a crucial source capacity increase and add much-needed resilience to Ridgefield’s water system. The funding would be used for the development of two new source wells to serve the over 15,000 residents of the city, and each well is anticipated to provide up to 300 gallons per minute for water distribution. Water demand is projected to exceed supply in 2026 or 2027. Providing upgrades to the water system will ensure first responders wouldn’t drain the system if an emergency occurs. With the anticipated population and economic growth for the City, an adequate water system is crucial.

7. Regional Meat Processing Infrastructure

Requested Amount: $1,500,000

Intended Recipient: City of Tenino

Intended Recipient Address: 149 Hodgden Street S., Tenino, WA 98589

This project would prepare a lot at the SW WA Agricultural Business and Innovation Park in Tenino and install infrastructure that will support the site for a regional meat processing facility usage. The regional meat processing facility will provide animal harvest, cut and wrap, and cold storage services for small and medium-sized businesses located in the 14 counties surrounding Thurston County. The objective is to fill the much-needed gap in regional-scale meat processing infrastructure to create an outcome of a local meat supply chain that will make our region more resilient, and responsive to disruptions. The capacity of our region’s producers is constrained by a significant gap in regional-scale processing facilities for harvest, processing and storage. This not only prevents business growth and market expansion, it becomes an issue threatening the viability of these small, family-owned businesses. Producers in the region are waiting up to a year to get a scheduled appointment time or have to ship their animals to Eastern Washington and Oregon, significantly increasing cost.

8. Marine Park Wastewater Treatment Facility Influent Screening Replacement Project

Requested Amount: $2,000,000

Intended Recipient: City of Vancouver

Intended Recipient Address: 415 W 6th Street, Vancouver, WA 98660

The Marine Park Wastewater Treatment Facility is a critical component of Vancouver’s wastewater treatment system, which serves a residential population of 245,000. To improve system safety, efficiency, and water quality outcomes, the City of Vancouver is seeking to install new influent screening technology at the Marine Park facility capable of capturing 40% more debris early in the treatment process. The intended new systems will provide fully automated self-cleaning continuously operating capabilities, without requiring staff to manually clean screens and remove clogged debris. Doing so protects equipment from costly repairs and improves water quality by removing pollutants. It will also limit hazards and exposure risks, making more effective use of staff time while improving wastewater treatment quality and outcomes. Originally installed nearly 30 years ago, the current screening system is reaching the end of its useful life.

9. Wallace Heights Septic Elimination Project

Requested Amount: $2,215,000

Intended Recipient: Clark Regional Wastewater District

Intended Recipient Address: 11012 NE Stutz Rd., Vancouver, WA, 98686

This funding will be used for construction and installation of 4,225 feet of 8-inch gravity mains serving 66 residential properties in Wallace Heights. The project addresses failing septic systems, an urgent public health need, in Wallace Heights. The neighborhood is located within the Lower Salmon Creek Watershed, which is subject to a state Department of Ecology Water Cleanup Plan for fecal coliform bacteria. Clark County also recognizes tributary streams in the vicinity of the Project to be in poor health due in part to elevated levels of bacteria and nutrients that are contributing to stream health degradation. This is because when septic systems unnoticeably fail to fully treat waste, effluent can migrate into nearby streams and ponds, and is often a source of increased nitrates in groundwater.

10. Northwest Service Area Grid Resiliency

Requested Amount: $2,750,000

Intended Recipient: Cowlitz County Public Utility District No. 1

Intended Recipient Address: 961 12th Ave., Longview, WA 98632

Cowlitz PUD seeks funding to relocate and underground 5.5 miles of electric distribution lines that will improve reliability, community resiliency and reduce wildfire risk in the northwest region of its service area. This line provides service to approximately 700 residents, including the rural senior citizen community of Ryderwood, many of whom are dependent on electric medical devices. The heavily forested and remote area regularly experiences lengthy power outages during severe weather from downed branches, and there is an increased wildfire risk during extreme heat conditions. Outages in this area are more frequent and longer than most of Cowlitz PUD’s service area, with the average length of service disruption exceeding 8 hours. Federal assistance would reduce impacts to ratepayers, and completion of the project will result in a virtual elimination of outages during severe weather and ensure reliable electric service is available when power is most needed.

11. Ceres Hill Road Bridge Rehabilitation

Requested Amount: $4,000,000

Intended Recipient: Lewis County

Intended Recipient Address: 351 NW N Street, Chehalis, WA 98532

Early in 2023, during a bridge inspection of the Ceres Hill Bridge #102, it was found that structural components of the bridge had cracking significant enough to restrict the load rating of the bridge. The bridge inspection and the corresponding load rating required a reduction in the load carrying capacity of the bridge to 15 tons. This load rating restricts many fire and life safety vehicles from crossing over the Chehalis River at this bridge. This funding would allow for construction of necessary repairs to restore the bridge to legal load weight limits.

12. Lewis County Public Safety Radio Infrastructure and Site Modernization

Requested Amount: $980,000

Intended Recipient: Lewis County 911 Communications Division 

Intended Recipient Address: 351 NW North St., Chehalis, WA 98532

This project would improve public safety and emergency response by strengthening and updating Lewis County’s aging VHF communications systems. These systems provide critical links among law enforcement, fire, and EMS responders. This project includes the acquisition and installation of modern radio and networking equipment, emergency power options like battery backups and generators, climate control, and other related equipment requirements to maintain radio system functionality and harden sites against power failures. This will also provide for reliable communications across jurisdictions, ensuring swift regional response to emergencies.

13. Underwood Water Rehabilitation Project

Requested Amount: $2,250,000

Intended Recipient: Skamania County Public Utility District No. 1

Intended Recipient Address: 1492 Wind River Hwy., Carson, WA 98610

Skamania PUD’s Underwood Water Rehabilitation Project would upgrade drinking water sources and booster pump stations that are critical to supplying water and fire protection to the burgeoning agricultural community of Underwood. In 2023, the community endured the Tunnel 5 Fire, which ran the town’s existing water infrastructure dry due to firefighting efforts. The absence of available water not only hampered fire control efforts but also created hardship for residents as it caused a lack of safe drinking water and a water boil advisory. Existing water facilities were constructed in the 1970s and are reaching the end of their useful life. The worsening wildfires and projected population growth, together with unpredictable water sources, make these upgrades essential. This project would strengthen resiliency and ensure the rural area has adequate water infrastructure to fight wildfires and provide safe drinking water for residents.

14. Bucoda Fire Engine Replacement

Requested Amount: $1,000,000

Intended Recipient: Town of Bucoda

Intended Recipient Address: 110 Main St. North, Bucoda, WA 98530

This funding would be used by the town of Bucoda to purchase a new fire engine. The current fire engine is from 1992 and presents a maintenance and reliability challenge. This project will benefit not only the town of Bucoda but the greater area around them, but also their volunteer firefighters who respond to neighboring districts for emergency calls. This would benefit residents, as well as visitors passing through the area by giving firefighters up-to-date equipment to effectively do their job in protecting the community, supporting the mission of improving safety and preventing property damage.

15. Sea Lion Mitigation and Salmon Protection

Requested Amount: $5,000,000

Intended Recipient: Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife

Intended Recipient Address: 1111 Washington St., SE Olympia, WA 98501

Despite non-lethal and limited lethal-take measures, the number of salmon and steelhead consumed by sea lions below Bonneville Dam more than doubled between 2006 and 2015, as larger Steller sea lions increased in numbers and began to take a higher toll. WDFW submitted a proposal to the National Marine Fisheries Service to expand authority to manage pinniped populations on the lower Columbia River and its tributaries. The authority under this permit increases the scope and scale of current management and expands lethal removal to include Steller sea lions. It also expands the area of potential removals, and it will increase removal activity from six or eight weeks per year, to 10 or more months per year. The federal permit to expand these operations was issued, and this new authority streamlines this process and has already begun to increase the number of trappings and lethal removals, decreasing the number of pinnipeds impacting listed salmon and steelhead. This funding would help fully implement this program under the new permit.
