Piece County Tour 1:00pm - 2:00pm

Pierce County’s Cascadia Wastewater Treatment Plant is a state-of-the-art MBR facility, serving the Employment Based Planned Community of Tehaleh in Bonney Lake Washington. Currently operating in the midst of a phased construction plan, the plant treats an average of .35 MGD to the highest standards in the Pacific Northwest, with plans for much more!

Some of the unique highlights of Cascadia include: 

    • A phased approach to construction that provides capacity as the community is built out.
    • Microdyne Flat sheet membranes producing superior effluent quality.
    • Currently operating with liquid stream processes only.
    • Built with a public/private partnership that provides an innovative solution to construction and operation issues. 
    • Intended as a closed loop community.   

Follow along with Jon Kercher as we tour the facility and learn more about what makes Cascadia and Tehaleh unique.

New this year – PNCWA is excited to host a Monday Night Networking evening in lieu of separately hosted consultant events. This will serve as a chance for all PNCWA members and attendees to get together and celebrate being together after the last year and a half and build excitement for the future. The combined event will be open to all conference attendees, creating an open and inclusive event that aligns with our vision as an organization.  

Through this event, we’ll be extending Monday Night Football beyond the exhibit hall floor! Join us outside on the Grove Plaza for the networking event of the evening! We will have screens available for viewing the game, light appetizers, and tons of networking. Each attendee will receive 1 complimentary drink ticket from PNCWA to use at the beverage tent. We are looking forward to bringing everyone together after a challenging year.
