Where will the new facility be built?

The facility will be located in the South Hill area of unincorporated Pierce County on the west side of 94th Avenue E between 122nd Street E and 126th Street E. This is the site of the former county-owned gravel pit commonly referred to as the Ninth Street Pit. This site was chosen because of its location in mid-Pierce County where the greatest concentration of both sewer and traffic infrastructure currently exists. This location is also in the midst of the communities where growth in the County is anticipated over the next 30 years.

Additionally, because the site is already owned by Pierce County, locating the facility at the 9th Street Pit provides a significant cost savings for the project.
