Kingston Recycled Water

Kingston’s recycled water project involves upgrading the Kingston Treatment Plant from secondary to tertiary treatment and providing the resulting recycled water to irrigate the White Horse Golf Club. The water will also be used to enhance stream flow and improve the quality of water entering Appletree Cove and Miller Bay.

Estimated total project costs are $8 million, including planning, design, construction, and contingency funds. A preliminary feasibility assessment of reclaiming wastewater for irrigation and stream flow has already been conducted. Project sponsors have requested additional funding to complete a detailed preliminary analysis, including engineering and field work required for design.

Goals of this recycled water project include the following:

  • Conserve groundwater resources
  • Restore natural hydrologic flow
  • Reduce water pollution
  • Enhance aquatic habitat
  • Address the effects of contaminants

Funding Sources:

  • Washington State Department of Ecology
  • U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Clean Water State Revolving Fund
