About the project

Pierce County extended its sewer service to a 370-acre area. Construction crews installed a new pump station at the intersection of 182nd Street East and 28th Avenue East. The pump station will move flows up and out of the basin and into the nearby gravity sewer system.

The project also included the installation of approximately 2,750 feet of force main in the public right-of-way west of the pump station and approximately 3,800 feet of gravity sewer east of the pump station along 182nd Street East and 38th Avenue East ending at 180th Street East.

This project supports the Pierce County Centers and Corridors initiative promoting compact communities built around major roadways. The project supports development along the 176th Street East corridor.
