Hoquiam Receives $9,470,000 Loan From US Department of Agriculture

"This project is number one in our general sewer plan and has been the top priority and concern by our dedicated staff in the sewer department for many years," said City Administrator Brian Shay.  "We are all extremely excited about the opportunity to move this project forward rather than continuing to pass on the problem to future generations."

The City anticipates bidding the project within 60 days, with construction completed by the fall of 2010.
