The Capital Facilities Plan identifies necessary improvements in water, wastewater and storm drainage facilities to achieve an acceptable level of service that protect public health and safety while promoting economic development. Tackling these projects requires the Utilities and Development Division to spend a considerable amount of time working directly with the communities of Grays Harbor County.
