North Bend’s Wastewater Plant to Initiate Important Phase 2 Operation, Anticipates Temporary Odor Issue

On September 7, Thursday, North Bend’s Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) is set to initiate a pivotal operation as a component of the second phase of its High Priority Improvements Project.

During the operation, crews will shift the contents from the old aeration basin to a newly constructed one. Residents are advised that this procedure may cause noticeable odors to emanate from the facility temporarily. Both municipal and contracted crews are committed to resolving the odor issue as swiftly as possible.

The City of North Bend is grateful for the continued patience and understanding of residents and local businesses as these essential infrastructure upgrades are carried out. For any questions or concerns, City Engineer Donald DeBerg can be reached via email at

Upon completion, the two-phased, high-priority project aims to enhance system redundancy, bolster employee safety, expand treatment and hydraulic capabilities, replace aging infrastructure, and introduce crucial environmental safeguards to protect the Snoqualmie River.
