Tieton - 2008 Water System Improvements

In November of 2006, the City of Tieton experienced a major failure in their water system leaving approximately 1,200 residents without running water for multiple days.  Declared as a state of emergency by the mayor, HLA began urgent efforts to address the crisis, locating funding sources and beginning engineering design repairs.

Work to replace brittle, antiquated, asbestos cement pipe, some as many as 60 years in age, was performed in multiple phases consisting of installation of approximately 26,350 linear feet of new 8-, 12-, and 16-inch water main.  The project included new water services, water meters, valves, hydrants, and a complete upgrade of the City’s telemetry system. 

HLA services included coordination of multiple funding sources, design engineering, plans, specifications, construction observation and management, and funding administration services.

Sources of Project Funding:

  • Department of Community, Trade, and Economic Development Grant
  • Public Works Trust Fund
  • Yakima County Supporting Investments in Economic Development
  • Local Funds

Total Project Cost:  $3,962,000
