Arlington's wastewater treatment plant, stormwater wetland dedicated Aug. 24

ARLINGTON — The public is invited to join U.S. Rep. Rick Larsen and Arlington Mayor Margaret Larson in celebrating the grand opening of the city of Arlington's wastewater treatment plant upgrade and expansion, as well as its stormwater wetland project.

Tours of the wastewater treatment plant and stormwater wetland will be available from 9:30-11 a.m. on Aug. 24, after which Larsen and Larson will offer dedication speeches and conduct a ribbon-cutting ceremony from 11-11:30 a.m.

"Both of these projects are significant because of the positive environmental benefit they will have on the Stillaguamish River and Puget Sound, and because these are two of the largest public infrastructure projects ever undertaken by the city," Arlington Assistant City Administrator Kristin Banfield said. "Without the teamwork of all our partners, these projects would still be on the drawing board."
