Washington Correctional Center Reclaimed Water Implementation
Century West provided design services for this reclaimed water implementation project for the WCC near Shelton. The DOC has an agreement with the City of Shelton to send their wastewater to the City and has the rights to use 120,000 gallons-per-day (gpd) of treated reclaimed water on the campus. The goal was to design improvements to implement reclaimed water irrigation, boiler makeup source, and laundry water for the campus. Century West also completed the design of a 250,000-gallon welded steel water reservoir and 200-gpm booster station to provide consistent, reliable reclaimed water to the facility as the City of Shelton does not have the infrastructure in place to provide reclaimed water on a consistent basis. The storage tank was removed from the final bid documents due to funding limitations. The project required significant correspondence and coordination between Mason County (the permitting agency), the City of Shelton (the reclaimed water supplier), WCC Staff, WSDOH, and Ecology. All these agencies played a key role in the direction of the design and eventual implementation of the project. Century West provided design and construction administration and inspection services for the project.
