#222 Bob Wheeler, Hadlock Sewer System

(Airdate: May 16, 2023) Maryanne interviews Bob Wheeler, the man behind the development of the much-anticipated Port Hadlock Sewer System. Construction of Phase #1 is finally beginning. When completed, the sewer system should radically change the housing situation on the peninsula. To put it in shorthand, current codes requiring septic systems basically allow one dwelling on each five-acre parcel. When the sewer system is fully operational, those same five acres could have over 200 residential units, including apartments. Businesses are also hemmed in by the current septic requirements. Some are already planning expansion. Bob expects Phase #1 to be completed in 2025.
