Sewer improvements coming for North Huron corridor

On Monday, Oct. 22, Westminster City Council approved a contract amendment with Carollo Engineers, Inc. for final design of the North Huron Interceptor Sanitary Sewer.

The proposed interceptor sewer improvements, which include a new lift station, will serve existing and new development along North Huron Street that are consistent with Westminster’s 2013 Comprehensive Plan and ongoing vision for sustainable development.

The project area extends from the Orchard Town Center north of 144th Avenue south to the Big Dry Creek Wastewater Treatment Facility on Huron Street.

Portions of the North Huron Interceptor Sewer were built in 1987, prior to the development of the 2013 Comprehensive Plan, and development projections have changed over this period of time. As the 2013 Comprehensive Plan was adopted, it was understood that there would be additional utility infrastructure necessary to meet the development contemplated within the land use designations.

The proposed sewer improvements, currently estimated at $18 million, will be paid using funds from the North Huron Urban Renewal Area, with no impact to the Utility Fund or water rates and fees. 

The schedule for design and construction of the interceptor sewer would continue through 2020, and construction of the lift station would likely continue through 2021. 

This project is separate from the Big Dry Creek Sewer Interceptor project, which is currently in the preliminary design phase. The city currently has a moratorium on new development applications in the area served by that sewer main line.
