    Infiltration Basin Facility
    Reuse Demonstration Park
    The City of Sequim was awarded a grant from the Department of Ecology in 2008 for Design of Reuse Site Improvements and Distribution System Expansion. This portion of the Grant is to construct infiltration basin, monitoring well, reclaimed water piping, and upgrades to the existing electrical system located at the Reuse Demonstration Park. The infiltration basin will act as an aquifer-recharge system by conveying the excess reclaimed water from the waste water treatment facility.

Kamin Excavation began the construction of this project March 6, 2013. The hours of construction is between 7:30 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.
