CHS Engineers was selected by the Lake Stevens Sewer District to complete an update to its 2008 Comprehensive Sewer Plan. The update, scheduled for completion in 2015, will consider the effect of the recent recession on growth and development in the Lake Stevens community and corresponding impacts on capacity in the District’s wastewater collection and treatment system.

The updated plan will evaluate the impact of recent land use changes as well as the condition of its 29 lift and pump stations. The culmination of the plan will be a recommended capital improvement plan for the next 20 years, and evaluation of the level of customer rates and connection charges appropriate to support the District’s mission of protecting the local environment and providing excellent service to the community.
