The Town of Yacolt has a plan in place in the event it becomes necessary for a sanitary sewer system. This report (GSP) is based on the Clark County Comprehensive Plan Update-2004 (adopted 2007). Yacolt has prepared this Comprehensive General Sewer Plan for submittal and approval as a necessary step in order to move forward with urban development within the Town. In accordance with Revised Code of Washington(RCW) 90.48.110 and Washington Administrative Code(WAC) 173.240, this document meets all of the requirements for approval by the Washington State Department of Ecology.
The Town of Yacolt is a community of 1,470 (2008 projection by Washington State Office of Financial Management) located in North-Central Clark County Washington. Located within a valley in the foothills of the Cascade Mountain Range, Yacolt is currently served by septic systems for its wastewater needs. The Town's Urban Growth Area(UGA) makes up approximately one third of the valley. While Yacolt is currently served by septic systems, there are concerns that groundwater recharge by these septic systems may result in an eventual negative impact to groundwater and area wells. Yacolt has required the modification of installations of septic systems for all new or repaired septic systems.
