6th Ave and 9th Ave Sewer Pump Stations

The 6th Ave and 9th Ave Sewer Pump Station improvements are almost completed. The pumps are up and running. The contractor is working on final punch list items. The Public Works and Parks Department are looking into the possibility of adding a second set of swings to Lion’s Park before the project is closed out. Final items should be wrapped up in February.


Hostmark Distribution and Transmission Water Mains/Hostmark Overlay

The Hostmark distribution main is scheduled for replacement in 2016 and a new transmission main will be installed between the Wilderness Park Booster and Raab Park. The new main will allow the City to transfer supply between zones and improve redundancy in the City’s water system. The two mains will be packaged as one project.

The 2016 funding for the City’s Pavement Restoration Program is allocated to overlay Hostmark Road between Caldart Ave and SR 305. The overlay project will be bid as a separate project but will be timed to begin construction immediately after the completion of the water mains project. All the work for both projects must be completed by September. Planning and design for both of these projects is underway now.

Pugh Well/Lincoln Well #2 Treatment for Manganese

This project consists of the design and construction of the Lincoln Well #2 Manganese Water Treatment Plant. The facility will be located on the Lincoln Well #2 site at 2500 NE Lincoln Road. Construction will include site grading, construction of a building to house the water treatment plant, installation of the water treatment plant, associated piping, backwash facilities, sedimentation pond, and necessary electrical and mechanical equipment. The pilot study for the treatment facility during the design phase was partially funded by a grant from the Department of Health. Construction was advertised and bids were opened in September. The bids all exceeded the Engineer’s estimate and were therefore rejected by Council. The Engineering Department is working on a new value-engineered bid package to re-bid the project in the next few months. Construction will take place in 2016.

Noll Road Improvements

The project will connect SR305 to NE Lincoln Rd via Noll Road, Languanet Lane, and Maranatha Road. The project will include roadway, street lighting, sidewalk, bike lane, and shared use path improvements in various configurations through the corridor. The project will realign Noll Road from ¼ mile south of Poulsbo Elementary School to SR305 (new roadway.) It will also include intersection improvements (roundabout or traffic signal) at the new intersection in the vicinity of Johnson Road and possible intersection traffic control at the Noll Road intersection. Preliminary design on this project is underway.

Viking Ave PRV Installation

This project will consist of the installation of two pressure reducing valve systems in the vicinity of Viking Ave to allow additional flow in the City's water system from the west high zone to the low zone. Bid documents are in the final review phase and the project will be advertised soon. Construction will take place in 2016.

Liberty Bay Pump Station Upgrades and Poulsbo Village Pump Station Upgrades

The Liberty Bay PS Upgrades will consist of the expansion of the lift station to meet current and future demands within the basin. Existing pump equipment will be replaced including all pumps, valves, and controls and the electrical pedestal/generator transfer switch will be replaced.


The Village PS Upgrades will consist of the replacement of existing pump equipment including all pumps, valves, and controls. Pump controls will be installed above ground and the float system will be upgraded to a transducer based control system with the floats as the backup.


 The two pump station projects will be bid as one construction project in 2016.

Peterson Street Rock Wall Repair

This project is currently on hold due to budget constraints. The project will consist of the design and construction of a new rock wall on Peterson Street. The existing wall was surveyed and it was determined that the stability of the wall is insufficient.


Sewer Infiltration and Inflow

As part of the City’s Annual Inflow Reduction Program, Smoke Testing Services to evaluate the inflow and infiltration in the Poulsbo Village basin were advertised and bids were opened in October 2015. The project was awarded to SFE Global in December 2015. Smoke testing work is weather dependant and has been challenging during the wet weather of January. The contractor has completed the manhole inspections and portions of the smoke testing work. There may be additional testing in the month of February to complete the project. Please note that no corrective work will be done at the current time. The testing is survey work only. The results will provide the City with necessary data to plan and implement future corrective actions.

Liberty Bay TMDL Plan

The City was awarded a grant from Department of Ecology to develop a Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) Implementation Plan for Liberty Bay that will describe actions to help attain water quality standards and meet TMDL targets for discharges from the City. The project goal is to improve water quality in Liberty Bay and freshwater tributaries by reducing contaminant loading from impervious surfaces in the City’s urban area. Work on this project is progressing rapidly and is expected to be complete by March 2016.

Liberty Bay Waterfront Trail

This project will extend trails in American Legion Park to the existing trail system in Fish Park. Feasibility studies and pre-design work on this project are ongoing. The viability of the project is promising and the City anticipates more forward progress on this project in the coming months.


3rd Ave - Central Business District LID Improvements

This project was completed June 2015. It was partially funded by a stormwater grant from the Department of Ecology. The project included improvements to 3rd Ave Road and stormwater improvements throughout the city.

Decant Facility/Solid Waste Transfer Station

The construction of a new Decant Facility/Solid Waste Transfer Station is the first phase of the overall development of the new Public Works facility located at 22125 Viking Way. Construction was complete in June. The project was partially funded by a stormwater grant from the Department of Ecology. The Public Works Department is working on fencing the entire site to ensure access is only available to City employees. Design on the remainder of the site is continuing.
