Capitol City Golf Club Estates Water and Sewer Improvements

Frequently Asked Questions
Due to changes in fire suppression standards over the years, the City of Lacey must replace the water lines in Capitol City Golf Club Estates with larger diameter lines. This will provide an adequate amount of water flow from the hydrants for firefighting. The City of Lacey is also designing a sewer line to serve the area. In 2006, the City observed nitrate concentrations increase in drinking water from Well #4 (located on West Sarazen SE). City staff believes the increase is primarily due to inadequately treated wastewater effluent from on-site septic systems.
This project will be completed in two phases over two years. Currently the first phase, which includes properties on the east side of CCGCE, has been sent out for bids. Bidding will open February 11th and a contract will be awarded on February 27th. We anticipate construction to start in spring of 2020. Please contact Linsey Fields at 360-486-8707 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.

The City of Lacey and Thurston County are partners on the Mullen Road Improvements project to reconstruct a 0.9 mile section of Mullen Road SE from the Lacey City Limits to Carpenter Road.

The existing on-site reservoir is in need of structural repairs including a new interior and exterior coating. Repairing the existing reservoir without a back-up reservoir on the site would cause water flow and pressure concerns in the area, including a lack of commercial fire flow. The City had an evaluation report prepared by a consultant that identified three possible solutions to provide water when the existing reservoir was off-line. The proposed reservoir was the best economical and engineered solution. Construction is expected to run from February 2021 to December 2021.
