Port of Allyn commission approves water system plan

Port of Allyn commissioners approved a contract with WestSound Engineering to redesign a plan to incorporate the Allyn Carey Water System into the port’s system at a special meeting June 10.

Commissioner Judy Scott said she’d worked with WestSound Engineering before.

“I’ve been pleased with their work,” Scott said.

Scott and Commissioner Michael Curtain approved the $14,922 contract. Commissioner John Sheridan did not attend the meeting.

Interim Executive Director Travis Merrill said that he and Jeff Carey met with WestSound engineer Michael J. Michael and they thought he understood the needs of the port.

“They’re not after our last dollars,” Merrill said.

According to WestSound’s proposal, the incorporation of the Allyn Carey Water System requires a booster station that has already been designed and approved by the state health department.

“The initial design for the booster station incorporates the ability to serve a significant portion of the future ‘upper pressure zone’ of the Port’s system. The Port desires to re-evaluate the initial size of the new ‘upper pressure zone’ to the area likely to be connected in the next 10 to 15 years, thus allowing for a reduction in the size and complexity of the booster station,” the proposal states.

The estimate doesn’t include the permitting agency comments and additional services including survey, geotechnical engineering, wetland evaluation, tree conservation plan, and traffic impact analysis, according to the proposal.
