Lift Station #2 located on Westlake Drive in Lacey needs to be replaced. It is the oldest lift station in operation in the city, dating to 1970, and has exceeded its life expectancy. Its location must remain on Westlake Drive SE. Because no homes or parcels are for sale, the city is also interested in purchasing a property to move the lift station to.
Letters have been sent to all homeowners in this area. An Open House will be held as well to inform and help answer any questions neighbors may have.
