The Port of Moses Lake operates a land application based Industrial Wastewater System. This system currently serves six industrial clients. The Port receives effluent from clients through a gravity collection system to a central transmission station where it is sent under pressure to one of the two lagoons. The Port has storage capacity for 59 million gallons. The Port applies this stored water onto a forage crop during the summer months. The Port currently has 240 acres in crop production. In order to further the Port’s services to current and future clients, the Port is looking to expand its operations in 2020-2021 increase its land capacity as well as storage capacity. These investments will increase the capacity of the Ports system from 400,000 gallons per day to 1 million gallons per day.
