The Port of Olympia Commission will meet twice this week, at 5:30 p.m. Monday for its regularly scheduled commission meeting and then at 2 p.m. Thursday for a joint work session with the Thurston County Board of Commissioners.
Monday’s meeting is set for Tumwater Town Center, 7241 Cleanwater Drive SW, Tumwater, while the joint work session will take place at Building 1 of the Thurston County Courthouse, Room 280, 2000 Lakeridge Drive SW, Olympia.
During Monday’s meeting, port commissioners will decide whether to seek bids for a new stormwater treatment system that will serve the marine terminal.
According to the agenda:
“The stormwater treatment system proposed for the marine terminal consists of a chemical oxidation system that is intended to remove the pollutants through a series of settling basins located along the eastern side of the terminal.”
Construction costs, which will be funded by proceeds from general obligation bonds issued last year, are estimated to range from $6.4 million to $7.6 million.
Since February of last year, the port has been working with Herrera Inc., a company with offices in Olympia, Seattle, Portland and Missoula, Mont., that has helped the port with engineering, design, estimating and bid document preparation for the project.
Set to be discussed Thursday with the County Commission: an airport master plan for Olympia Regional Airport; Budd Inlet sediment testing and steps to follow; a south Thurston County economic development initiative; and an update on Capitol Lake.
