CAPITAL FACILITIES
VI- 1 INTRODUCTION
Purpose
The Capital Facilities Chapter contains the capital facilities element, one of the six elements
required for Mason County's Comprehensive Plan under the Growth Management Act (GMA)
(36.70A.070 RCW). This element provides an inventory of existing conditions and publicly
owned facilities by quantifying capital facilities currently provided by Mason County or by other
jurisdictions operating in the County.
The chapter also contains goals and policies for the capital facilities operated by Mason County,
except for transportation facilities, which are discussed in the Transportation Chapter.
The capacity of the County facilities and the level of service they provide is discussed and
compared with the County's desired levels of service. The "level of service" is an objective
measure of how well services are provided to the public. Deficiencies and improvement needs
are identified, improvement costs are estimated, projects are scheduled for six and 20-year
planning horizons, and a six-year finance plan and possible financing options are discussed.
Besides the City of Shelton, there are other public organizations and special districts that have
capital facilities and taxing authority which exist in the county. These include the school districts,
hospital district, port districts, cemetery district, regional library system, and fire districts. These
districts have their own governing body and capital facilities planning. The county coordinated
the comprehensive plan with these bodies, through meetings, correspondence, and by providing
draft of the comprehensive plan to these districts for comment. A list of these districts is
provided as follows:

Organization and Contents
The following section of this chapter, Vl-2, includes a list of goals and policies that provides
the direction for future capital facility decisions for Mason County.
Subsequent sections, Vl-3 through 8, profile and analyze seven types of capital facilities in
the County, as follows:
•
Wastewater and Wastewater Utilities
•
Solid Waste Utility
•
Parks and Recreation Facilities
•
County Administration Buildings
•
Police and Criminal Justice Buildings
•
Stormwater Management Facilities
Sections 3 through 8 each includes a brief description of the existing systems and public
entities that provide the facilities. An assessment of future facility needs is also
developed for each category of facility. The last section of this chapter, Vl-1 0, discusses
financing for county owned and operated facilities for the six-year financial planning
period 2006 to 2011.
Facility Needs
A number of methods can be used to determine Mason County's capital facility needs
over the next six and 20-year GMA planning periods. As not all capital facilities require
the same level of analysis to determine needed improvements, different analytical
techniques can be employed to identify facility needs as long as they accomplish the goal
of determining future need for the capital facilities.
While the state Growth Management Act requires that level of service (LOS) standards
be established to identify transportation improvements, the need for other capital facilities
can be assessed using either LOS or planning level assumptions (WAC 365-195-315).

Capital Facilities
The advantage of using LOS standards is the ability to quantify deficiencies and identify
improvement needs. The LOS can also be used as a performance standard for
concurrency by comparing the service level being provided by a capital facility against
the quantitative LOS standard. The service is considered deficient if it does not meet the
service level standard that the County has determined it wants to deliver to its residents
and users. The LOS approach makes the most sense where there are easily
quantifiable facilities or where the state has defined the standards, such as for sewer and
water facilities.
The less rigorous planning assumptions approach also has advantages. The capital
facilities planning assumptions are not quantitative measures of facility need. Instead,
they identify facility improvements based upon the need to serve growth and
development anticipated in the land use element. This approach works best where
identification of quantitative measures would be difficult, where there are no statewide
standards, or where the necessary information or data to apply quantitative measures
would be difficult or too time-consuming to obtain. Facilities such as parks and
recreation and stormwater facilities might best be handled with this approach.
Financing
Facility needs are identified, and a six-year finance plan is developed, in section Vl-1 0 for
the following County-owned-and-operated facilities. Finance plans for stormwater
management in the Allyn and Belfair Urban Growth Areas also provided in Section 8Costs, Schedule and Implementation of the Allyn Urban Growth Area Stormwater
Management Plan and in Section 8- Costs, Schedule and Implementation of the Belfair
Urban Growth Area Stormwater Management Plan. Finance plans for sewer service in
the Befair Urban Growth Area also found in Section 11 - Financial Impact Evaluation of
the Belfair/Lower Hood Canal Water Reclamation Facility Plan Supplemental
Information. The Allyn and Belfair Stormwater Plans and the Belfair Facility Plan
discussed above and the Hoodsport Stormwater Plan are herein incorporated in their
entirety by referenced in this Chapter.

Capital Facilities
This section also includes the results of facility planning efforts completed by the County
for County administrative buildings, police and criminal justice facilities, and solid waste
facilities. Financing needs and options are included for these facilities as well. The
section appendix includes the capital facilities plans for Grapeview, Hood Canal, North
Mason, Pioneer, and Shelton School Districts, to facilitate orderly growth and
coordination in the provision of future capital facility needs.
Concurrency Management
One of the Growth Management Act goals, referred to as "concurrency," is the provision
of infrastructure facilities and services to serve projected growth at the time such growth
occurs, or within a reasonable time afterwards. This starts with identifying specific facility
needs using the strategies previously discussed. Another important aspect of
concurrency is the ability to monitor the development of infrastructure improvements to
assess whether they keep pace with approved development.
Concurrency management, as it is called, involves a set of land use and permit approval
processes designed to ensure facilities and services keep pace with growth. In some
cases, development codes could be enacted to require that specific LOS standards be
promulgated through the development of identified improvements.
In other cases, restrictions to growth may be imposed until appropriate service standards
for capital facilities are achieved. This might be the approach required for
unincorporated areas within the City of Shelton Urban Growth Area (UGA), for instance.
Land use applications for certain development proposals, in areas targeted for future
growth, could have their approvals withheld pending concomitant development of
appropriate urban service level facilities (e.g., sewer facilities). The municipality would be
responsible for managing the concurrent development of these urban services. This can
be accomplished by requiring that individual developers fund and implement needed
improvements. Under this arrangement, the final tenant (e.g., homebuyer or building
purchaser) would ultimately pay for the new facilities through a higher initial purchase
price or through a periodic assessment.
Mason County's policies for concurrency management are contained in the following
section, Vl-2.

Vl.2 GOALS AND POLICIES
Introduction
Mason County's Capital Facilities Element is guided by goals and policies for the
preferred service philosophy of the County. Goals and policies are required as part of
the Capital Facilities Element (RCW 36.70A) of the overall GMA Comprehensive Plan.
Development Process
Mason County evaluated it's existing facilities, it's future needs, it's costs, and the types
and levels of services which it should require or provide in the county. The goals and
policies listed herein are the result of this process. Policies listed under General Capital
Facilities apply to all facilities addressed in the Capital Facilities Chapter. Facility-specific
policies apply only to those facilities.

Vl.3 WATER AND WASTEWATER UTILITIES
Introduction
The County owns and operates small water and sewer systems for the Harstene Pointe and
Rustlewood communities, and the water system for Beard's Cove community. In addition, the
County operates a medium-sized wastewater collection system and treatment plant for the North
Bay Case Inlet area. This area was defined through studies of the area contributing human
sewage contamination to Case Inlet, and the system service area was set accordingly. In the
smaller community-based systems, there is no planned expansion beyond the existing platted
lots. These systems currently provide services to approximately 1200 customers, with the
potential to serve an additional 100. The North Bay Case Inlet system provides service to
approximately 950 customers, with additional capacity to serve an estimated 850 additional
equivalent residential units within the existing service area.
The following "Water" and "Wastewater'' sections provide project-level detail on the planned
improvements necessary to meet state regulatory guidelines in the provision of water and
wastewater services for these systems. Each project in each section is accompanied by a
separate project sheet, which provides a description, and justification, along with a table
depicting the estimated costs and funding sources for planning period 2008 through 2013. A
summary table that provides overall costs and funding sources for each water and sewer system
follows each section.
Financing the planned utility improvements requires the use of grants, loans, and capital
reserves. The specific combination of funds, and the availability of grants and loans, may affect
user rates for each system as well as the timing on projects. The ability to initiate specific
projects will be assessed annually based on the urgency of need, reserve funds available, and
commitments from funding agencies to provide grants and/or loans. The decisions about
whether or not to proceed with any planned project is the decision of the Mason County Board of
Commissioners for consideration in the annual budgeting and rate-setting process. To the
extent possible, projects will be funded through:
1)
2)
3)
4)
Rate revenues (capital reserves)
Grants;
Low interest loans; or
Some combination of 1-3 above.
Project costs shown in each section range in accuracy from + or- 40% to + or- 15%. Each
project cost sheet identifies the accuracy of the estimated costs shown, based on the following
scale:
•
•
<~~
"Planning Level"- The least accurate of costs estimates, in the range of+ or- 40%. Cost
estimates at this level are usually based on a project concept and some assessment of
relative scale, or annual program amounts commensurate with a level of activity sufficient to
accomplish the intent of the program over time.
"Design Report" - Moderate accuracy, in the range of+ or- 30%. Based on design report
evaluation of options and an assessment of project elements and associated costs.
"Engineer's Estimate"- Most accurate estimate, in the range of+ or -15%. These estimates

are based on a project design or significant completion of design work.
Future System Development
Included in the wastewater sections of this document are additional projects that are not
associated with the existing County-owned utility systems. These projects represent efforts to
provide utility services to areas which have been identified as problems with regard to density
and water quality, but where no established systems are currently in place. There are two such
areas where the County is currently investing resources in the long-term resolution of identified
problems:
Belfair Urban Growth Area
The County has adopted a sewer connection strategy for the Belfair UGA. The strategy is
identified on Maps 1 though 4 and Appendix B. The strategy identifies phasing, line location,
and environmental constraints, and covers total build out of the UGA. The development of the
infrastructure necessary to serve the entire Belfair UGA will be financed through a combination
of grants, loans, monthly utility rates, system development charges, and developer contributions.
The Belfair area is divided into four phases with the initial area to be sewered is the Belfair
corridor area, followed by the Old Belfair Highway, the Newkirk Connection, and the Southern
Connection (Map 1). Map 2 shows the year in which development will occur. Map 3 illustrates
capital improvements needed in each of the areas. Appendix C illustrates the cost for each of
the areas. Appendix A outlines the affordability of the sewer system for the community.
Hoodsport /Skokomish Area.
The development of a sewer facility plan has been completed for the Hoodsport Rural Activity
Center. Additional sewer planning efforts are now under way for the Potlatch State Park and
Tribal areas. These planning efforts will address options for collection and treatment of the more
densely populated Hoodsport area, the State Park and portions of the tribal lands. The funding
for any recommended system development will initially be provided through grants and/or loans
until there is an established rate base to provide payments for the system.

Estimates: Planning level
Description: Upgrade existing 3 HP pumps that pass solids with 5 HP submersible grinder
pumps to improve the pump station performance and capacity. Add an emergency generator for
use during power outages.
Justification: The existing pumps require additional maintenance and are subject to periodic
clogging. They are also undersized to handle the increased flow due to expansion of the original
sub-basin and unanticipated levels of infiltration and inflow. The emergency power supply is
needed to prevent overflows during prolonged power outages

Project Name: Pump Station Overflow Reroute
Estimates: Planning level
Description: Analyze options, then design and construct the piping and receiving basins to
detain pump station overflows resulting from failures at the primary transmission line booster
pumps.
Justification: The current pump stations are situated near receiving waters that could be
affected in the event of a pump failure and overflow. This project will analyze the options for
routing this potential overflow to artificial detention ponds, rather than it reaching the surface
waters where the effects would be much more pronounced. Design and construction are
included in the costs following the initial analysis of options.

Project Name: Secure Storage and Parking Facility
Estimates: Planning level
Description: The Treatment plant does not currently have a secure building suitable for parking
vehicles and equipment.
Justification: Currently Utility vehicles are parked at the Mason County Landfill. When
employees report to work they must first go to the Mason County landfill to pick up their vehicles.
Operators currently arrive at the landfill at 8:00AM, pick up their vehicle then travel to the plant
arriving at around 8:45AM then leave about 3:45 PM to check out at the landfill by 4:30 PM. If
employees are called out for emergency repairs they must first pick up a service truck at the
landfill. Having service vehicles on site shortens emergency response times and will improve
employee efficiencies.

Estimates: Planning Level
Description: Annual program to reduce the flow of surface water and groundwater entering the
collection system. Projects may include system inspections, manhole replacements, pipe
replacement, and manhole or pipe connection sealing and grouting.
Justification: Federal and state regulations require treatment systems to remove 85% of the
contaminants from flows coming to the treatment plant. When inflow and infiltration is
excessive, the plant cannot achieve the required standard, resulting in potential permit
violations. In addition, valuable plant capacity is used to treat flows, which do not require
treatment. Plant operational costs also increase with the excess flows due to infiltration and
inflow.

Project Name: Treatment Plant Upgrades
Estimates: Design Report
Description: Pre design and Design work to upgrade the wastewater plant has been
completed. Construction of improvements to address new water quality standards as well as
rehabilitate aging plant systems will begin in January 2008 and be completed November 2008.
Improvements will include influent headworks, solids separation, sludge treatment, effluent
disinfection, remote system monitoring, and pumping capacities.
Justification: The existing plant is over 30 years old, and many of the main components are
worn to the point that rebuilding them would be more costly than replacement. In addition,
regulatory expectations for treatment performance have increased since the original plant was
constructed, requiring upgrades to the former treatment methods.

Fund: 412- Beards Cove Water
Project Name: Distribution System Improvements
Estimates: Planning Level
Description: This program is designed to provide annual incremental improvements to the
water distribution system to ensure its continued viability and integrity. Annual projects may
include the following: addition and replacement of fire hydrants, replacement of small sections of
pipe, new or replacement valves and looping, well and pumping station improvements and the
installation of service meters.
Justification: Over the past two decades, maintenance activity for the water system has
consisted primarily of leak repairs and service repairs or replacement. To ensure the continued
performance of the system, it is necessary to replace key components as they wear out. These
small projects for pipe replacement are beyond the current staff resources and may be much
more efficiently performed by outside contractors. State Law now requires service meters. In
2008 Mason County will begin installation of service meters on existing services. Finally, several
of the fire hydrants on this system are in need of replacement and many need modifications to
accommodate 4" storz fittings.

Description: This program is designed to provide annual incremental improvements to the
existing water system facilities to ensure their long-term integrity. Annual projects may include
the following: storage tank exterior coatings, pump house structures, fencing, roofing, driveway
surfaces, site electrical improvements, etc.
Justification: In order to preserve the storage and pumping systems, we must maintain the
facilities that surround them. If we do not pursue preventative maintenance on these facilities
the costs to bring them up to an acceptable condition will be much higher. These facilities are
also the publicly visible portion of our system, therefore, it is important that the facilities are kept
in good condition.

Project Name: Beards Cove Booster Pump
Estimates: Planning Level
Description: Installation of a booster pump to improve water pressure to residences near the
water storage tank and provide additional fire flow to the entire community.
Justification: Currently only the top 16.7 feet or 120,000 gallons of the 60' 400,000 gallon
Storage tank can be considered for usable storage. The total requirement for this system
identified in the 2002 water system plan is 250,050 gallons. That document identified fire flow as
500 gpm for 30 minutes or 15,000 gallons. That number has increased to 45,000 gallons under
the code adopted by the county since the water plan was written. Technically the system is
150,000 gallons deficient on usable storage. The addition of a booster pump to provide pressure
to all homes with an elevation within 57' of the storage tank base will allow for the use of the
systems entire water storage capability and meet the system's storage requirements.

Description: Install a Stationary Generator at Well #1
Justification: The December 15, 2006 windstorm knocked out power to the Hartstene Pointe
community for approximately seven days. In addition a secondary power line to the well houses
and community center faulted and PUD crews could not repair it until all primary power lines
were repaired. County Staff worked around the clock to prevent the sewage pump stations from
overflowing and needed the same portable generator used to power well number one. It was
realized at that time that the plan to provide emergency power to all the facilities using one
portable generator was flawed as a result of the failure to compensate for sewer system
Infiltration & Inflow when calculating the needed frequency that the sewage pump stations
needed pumping.

Fund: 411 -200 Rustlewood Water
Project Name: Water Distribution System Improvements
Estimates: Planning Level
Description: This program is designed to provide annual incremental improvements to the
water distribution system to ensure its continued viability and integrity. Annual projects may
include the following: addition and replacement of fire hydrants, replacement of small sections of
pipe, new or replacement valves and looping, well and pumping station improvements, the
installation of water service meters, and Small Water System Plan Development.
Justification: Over the past two decades, maintenance activity for the water system has
consisted primarily of leak repairs and service repairs or replacement. To ensure the continued
performance of the system, it is necessary to replace key components as they wear out. These
small projects for pipe replacement are beyond the current staff resources and much more
efficiently performed by outside contractors. Finally, several of the fire hydrants on this system
are in need of replacement and many need modifications to accommodate 4" storz fittings.

Description: Installation of Water Service meters on all new and existing water service
connections
Justification: The Water Use Efficiency Rule requires all water systems install service meters
by 2018. Although the rule allows twelve years to implement installation, the community will
benefit by implementing the process as soon as possible. The community will benefit from
meters by providing leakage data and allow billing based on usage.

Vl.4 SOLID WASTE UTILITY
Introduction
Mason County's solid waste utility provides transfer and disposal operations for solid waste at
four transfer station locations, and eight "blue box" drop off sites for household recyclable
materials. The largest transfer facility is located outside Shelton on Eels Hill Road. Materials
collected from the other smaller stations at Hoodsport, Union, and Belfair, are transported to the
Shelton facility for shipping to Centralia, WA. From there, the material is long-hauled via railroad
to Roosevelt Landfill in Klickitat County, located in Eastern Washington.
Household hazardous wastes (HHW) are collected and disposed of by Mason County staff at
the Shelton transfer facility. Residents in North Mason County can take their HHW to the Kitsap
County transfer station. This arrangement is established through interlocal agreement and
Mason County pays approximately $60 per customer for collection and disposal or materials
from residents who take their materials to the Kitsap County facility.
The Shelton transfer facility is located at the former Mason County Landfill. The current utility
provides post-closure monitoring and capital construction in support of the closed landfill. The
Shelton facility receives wastes collected by private and municipal haulers operating inside
Mason County.
The Belfair and Shelton transfer facilities are nearing capacity in terms of the tonnage they can
effectively handle on a daily basis. Growth in the Belfair area and elsewhere in the County
continues to impact operations at these facilities and capacity improvements will need to be
addressed in the near future.
The following pages provide details on specific projects proposed for the current capital facilities
planning period. Project estimates range in accuracy from+ or- 40% to+ or- 15%. Each
project cost sheet identifies the accuracy of the estimated costs shown based on the following
scale:
•
•
•
"Planning Level"- The least accurate of costs estimates, in the range of+ or- 40%. Cost
estimates at this level are usually based on a project concept and some assessment of
relative scale, or annual program amounts commensurate with a level of activity sufficient to
accomplish the intent of the program over time.
"Design Report"- Moderate accuracy, in the range of+ or- 30%. Based on design report
evaluation of options and an assessment of project elements and associated costs.
"Engineer's Estimate"- Most accurate estimate, in the range of+ or -15%. These estimates
are based on a project design or significant completion of the design work.

Estimates: Design Report
Description: Annual program to ensure continued operational effectiveness of transfer station
facilities and preserve existing assets. Improvements will include: road resurfacing, facility roof
replacements, minor building modifications, storage or handling facility construction, or
modifications to comply with regulatory requirements or preserve capacity.
Justification: Normal operation of transfer station facilities requires ongoing facility
improvements to existing fixed assets to maintain overall operational capabilities. Providing an
annual program and funding to complete these improvements is more efficient from an
administrative perspective and prudent in terms of ensuring the longevity of existing assets.

Project Name: Belfair Household Hazardous Waste Facility Improvements
Estimates: Design Report
Description: Design and construct a facility to provide household hazardous waste collection
services to north county residents.
Justification: Currently north county residents must take their household hazardous waste to
the Kitsap County facility. This service is provided through an interlocal agreement that costs
$65.00 per visit. The costs are the same no matter what type of material is dropped off at their
facility. Our own facility would save us considerable cost for disposal of less harmful materials
such as motor oil or latex paints. Operation of a county-owned facility would allow us to tailor the
hours of operation and types of material accepted to decrease these costs.

Project Name: Transfer Station System Improvements
Estimates: Planning Level
Description: This facility serves as a hub for all the garbage in Mason County. When originally
constructed in the early 1990's, throughput was a fraction of current levels. In order to safely
and efficiently serve the needs of the public and our commercial accounts, a second access
road with a scale is needed. Other minor improvements and enhancements will be required to
maintain the system over the next few years, such as road work, tip walls, and typical wear and
tear.
Justification: Over the past 15 years, the number of customers has grown dramatically, along
with tons exported. Steps to improve customer safety, reduce wait times, and increase
efficiency for commercial customers will allow the facility to postpone major construction for this
planning period.

Project Name: Belfair Improvements
Estimates: Planning Level
Description: This facility serves the north end of the County by providing residential drop off of

equipment, may be necessary by the end of this planning period.
Justification: Currently, our system is able to support the Belfair area. However, the current
and projected growth may exceed the capacity of this facility in the relatively near future. Due to
the location, it does not make sense to increase the tonnage without exporting directly to rail, or
at least to rail containers. To do so, a new facility would be necessary.

V/.5 PARKS AND RECREATION FACILITIES
System Description
Recreational opportunities in Mason County include parks for day-use activities and overnight
camping; fresh and salt water areas for boating and other water sports; facilities and equipment
for sports and play activities; and wilderness areas and other open spaces for hiking, hunting,
and horseback riding.
Existing parks and recreation facilities in Mason County are available through a variety of public
and private entities. Federal and state facilities include camping, boating, and day-use parks.
The County-owned park system includes day-use and water access facilities, sports fields, and
related recreational areas. Other agencies providing park and recreational resources include
municipalities, port districts, and public schools. Some private recreational facilities are open to
the public as well.
County Park Facilities
The County currently manages 18 park properties in Mason County two of which are
undeveloped, and three others have large portions that are also undeveloped. Of the developed
parks, two are large baseball/softball complexes, five provide saltwater access parks, two are
located on freshwater lakes, and three provide upland day use and recreation facilities (see
FIGURE VI. 5-1). In addition to the day use facilities, the County also owns and maintains one
above-ground skate park. The conditions of these facilities vary by location, however, significant
investment in facilities has been made in the last two years from Real Estate Excise Tax
proceeds (REET 2). The capital plan for the next six years continues this trend of investment in
park development and facility upgrades. The heavy use and demand from both county and nonCounty residents are particularly high during the spring and summer.
In recent years, parks operated by Mason County have received substantial increases in visitors.
Total visits increased 52 percent from 1992 to 1993, from 180,600 to 27 4,500 annual visits.
Nearly half of the total increase was at Sandhill Park, a sports park in Belfair. Sandhill's visitation
increased by 230 percent, from 20,300 to 67,000 visits, due in large part to increased use of the
park by local baseball, softball, and soccer leagues. Mason County Recreation Area, the largest
baseball/softball complex has grown in use the last several years and is now recognized
regionally as a preferred site for major tournaments.
There are no facilities for overnight camping throughout the Mason County Parks system. The
last county-wide park plan was developed in 1991 and subsequently updated in the late 1990s.
The previous plan recommended two sites for development as overnight camping facilities,
Truman Glick Memorial Park and Mason Lake Park. Camping options will be examined in the
long-term development plan being crafted for these and other park properties with large portions
of undeveloped land. Mason County developed a new county-wide parks plan in 2006, which
includes analysis and recommendations to address recreation needs within the county.
Inventory
An inventory of all Mason County parks including federal, state, private, and County-owned
parks is listed in TABLE VI.S-1. Also included are the number of acres and amenities available at
each park location. The locations of parks and recreational facilities operated by the County are

V/.6 COUNTY AND ADMINISTRATIVE BUILDINGS
System Description
Mason County owns several buildings, most of which are located in the City of Shelton, the
County seat. These buildings are used to support general County functions such as internal
management, health, public service, and general administration. Other buildings owned by the
County include Memorial Hall, the Cooperative Extension Office, the Mason County
Fair/Convention Center, the Central Shop, the Belfair Annex and the Belfair Shop. TABLE Vl.6-1
describes these sites. Locations of the facilities within the Shelton Campus are shown in FIGURE
Vl.6-1.
Memorial Hall is located in Shelton, a few blocks from the main campus area. The Mason
County Extension Office is located about 3 miles north of Shelton, on the northeast side of
Highway 101, across from the Shelton airport. The Central Shop is located on Johns Prairie
Road near Bayshore. The Belfair Annex is located on Highway 3 in Belfair and the Belfair Shop
is situated on the north shore of Hood Canal about 3 miles from Belfair.
Inventory
Mason County's administrative offices and departments housed in the buildings are listed in
Vl.6-2. Also provided is a summary of current office area allocations for the County
departments and departmental functions.
TABLE
Most of the County's administrative offices are located in the Shelton Campus, a four-squareblock section of the downtown area. At this location, the County operates from 12 publicly
owned buildings. These include the Courthouse, Jail, Juvenile Detention Facility, Building I,
Building II, Building Ill, Building IV, Building V, Building VI, Building VII, Building VIII, and
Building IX. Other county administrative offices are located at Building X (Belfair Annex),
Building XI (Cooperative Extension Building), and the offices at the Mason County Fairgrounds.
Facilitv Needs
Facility needs are being developed through a space planning effort currently being updated by
the County. This work is based on an assessment of agency needs related to growth in both the
six- and 20-year planning horizons. While planning is continuing, the county has identified the
space needs for County administration, law enforcement, and criminal justice facilities. Specific
planned improvements for the first six-year planning period and associated financing are
detailed in Section Vl.1 0, Finance Plan. Based on the "Space Standards Manual" published by
the State of Washington Department of General Administration, 251 square feet are needed per
employee. In addition, certain governmental functions have special requirements for facilities.
Currently the county has a deficit in space. Significant additional space will be required over the
next six and twenty years if the county is to offset that deficit and meet the future growth. The
information is summarized in Table Vl.6-3. Needs analysis and facility planning was done in
1995 and 1996. The background information and analysis can be found in "Update to Mason
County Space Needs Analysis for inclusion in the Mason County and Master Plan update, June
16, 1999."

Capital Facilities
Vl.7 POLICE AND CRIMINAL JUSTICE FACILITIES
System Description
The Mason County Sheriffs Office provides patrol and detective services to residents of
unincorporated Mason County. The Mason County District Court, located in Shelton, handles all
County-jurisdiction cases. Mason County has a juvenile detention or lockdown facility. The
County also has a severe shortage of jail space for adults, resulting in the early release of some
offenders.
Inventory
Law Enforcement
The County Sheriff's patrol division has a staff of 30 persons, of which 7 are assigned to the
detective division. The Sheriffs Office has a total staff of 92. The staff includes 33 jail
employees, 37 police officers, 16 support persons, and 6 administrative persons.
Criminal Activity
In 2004, the Sheriffs Office received 19,046 calls for service. The types of crimes reported in
2002, 2003, and 2004 are shown in TABLE V1.7-1. Overall, violent crimes account for
approximately eight percent of the criminal activity in Mason County. There was a reduction in
the number of violent crimes between 2002 and 2003, followed by a substantial increase in
2004. The majority of crimes committed in Mason County are property. For the past several
years, total calls for service have increased, thus limiting staff abilities to perform traffic
enforcement duties. As a result, criminal traffic and infraction traffic citations issued countywide
were 6,068 in 2004, compared to 6,718 in 1992.
Jail Facilities
The Mason County Jail opened in 1985 with capacity for 45 inmates. In 1989, capacity was
increased to 51, and in 1991 it was increased to 58 beds with floor space for 106. In 1993, the
average daily jail population was 62. In 2004, the average daily jail population was 95 or 146%
over capacity.

Facility Needs
In 1996, the Facilities Steering Committee and the Criminal Justice Working Team, working with
a consultant, assessed future County building needs. A report was issued jointly by the Facilities
Steering Committee and Criminal Justice Working Team in 1996, and updated in 1999 ("Mason
County Space Needs Analysis for inclusion in the Mason County Master Plan update, June 16,
1999") which identified four capital facility projects. Space needs are not determined by a simple
set of standards but by a comprehensive approach to the criminal justice systems program
needs. The projected cost of this plan and potential funding sources are incorporated in the
finance plan contained in Section Vl-1 0 of this chapter. A summary of space needs for the next
six-year and 20-year planning periods can be located on Table Vl.6-3, in the previous section
V1.6.

V/.8 STORMWATER MANAGEMENT FACILITIES
System Description
Existing stormwater facilities in Mason County include both natural (streams) and manmade
(pipeline) collection and conveyance systems. The existing systems generally handle runoff from
County Roads. The County currently has no stormwater plan or utility. Stormwater is managed
primarily through onsite control measures.
Increases in the amount of impervious surfaces, such as rooftops, roads, driveways, and
buildings, cause increased stormwater runoff. Forestry practices, such as logging, new roads,
and construction, also increase runoff and downstream sedimentation. Storm water runoff,
erosion, sedimentation, and flooding problems will likely increase in Mason County as a result of
residential and commercial development, particularly in the designated urban growth areas.
Inventory
Mason County has adopted a Stormwater Management Ordinance (Mason County Code
Section 14.48). This ordinance adopts by reference the 1992 edition of the Washington State
Department of Ecology's Stormwater Management Manual, with the exception of the Minimum
Requirements chapter, for use in designing best management practices (BMPs) for new
development and other improvements. The ordinance defines specific minimum requirements
and other approval standards for development on all ranges of parcel sizes
The City of Shelton has prepared a Surface Water Drainage Utility Master Plan. That master
plan identifies existing problems in the city and offers some recommendations for improvements.
The city has scheduled some improvements based on the existing master plan, but the city also
intends to update the plan within the six-year financial planning period.
Facility Needs
In 2006, Mason County commenced the development of a comprehensive countywide
Stormwater Management Plan (referenced hereafter as the Plan). This includes a review of
existing Comprehensive Plan Stormwater Policies, amendments to County Stormwater
regulations, and a review for consistency with the new Mason County Critical Areas Ordinance
(CAO) and Low Impact Development (LID) Standards. The Plan would address changing state
and regional regulatory requirements. This includes the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination
System (NPDES) permit program of the Clean Water Act, that controls water pollution by
regulating point sources that discharge pollutants into waters of the United States. Also, the Plan
would consider implementation of the 2005-2007 Puget Sound Conservation Plan, and the
Department of Ecology (DOE) 2005 Stormwater Design Manual for Western Washington. The
Plan would address evolving water quality needs affecting Hood Canal and South Puget Sound,
and delineate program objectives and identify funding sources to fund Plan implementation.
The Plan includes developing Stormwater Management Plans for the Allyn and Belfair Urban
Growth Areas, and the Hoodsport area. The Stormwater Management Plans for the Allyn and
Belfair Urban Growth Areas have been completed. These plans have been adopted by
Ordinance and are incorporated herein by reference. The Stormwater Management Plan for
Hoodsport is expected to be complete in 2008.

These Stormwater Management Plans assess existing built conditions, and evaluate future
infrastructure and capital improvement needs.
Flooding problems in the Skokomish River watershed are being addressed in a Comprehensive
Flood Hazard Management Plan. This plan defines a total program of river maintenance
activities, valley creek maintenance measures, flood protection measures, and flood warning
and emergency response procedures.
Mason County anticipates that the Skokomish River Watershed Comprehensive Flood Hazard
Management Plan would be completed and adopted in 2007. Focused plans for specific
problem areas may need to be developed in the future.

Description: Upgrading and construction of storm water facilities around the County will
provide treatment and proper control of storm water, reducing the risk of property damage and
contamination in our waterways. In support of efforts to implement more current regulations to
improve storm water quality, Mason County will be updating Ordinances and applying the new
Department of Ecology standards, beginning with the Allyn, Belfair, Shelton, and Hoodsport
areas in 2007/2008, then the Union areas in 2009/2010 and continuing throughout the county in
later years. The current Stormwater Management Plans for Allyn, Belfair and Hoodsport are
being development now. The Mason County Program is also being developed. Changes to the
CIP projected expenditures and revenues will be updated as the plans are finalize.
Justifications: The criteria for development of storm water facilities will be driven by the
population and identified contamination of each area. The State of Washington has identified
several areas within Mason County where contamination is effecting the water quality of our
bays and lakes.

V/.9 PUBLIC WORKS FACILITIES
Introduction
Mason County Public Works is responsible for engineering, construction, operation and
maintenance of approximately 640-miles of county roads. Currently staff is housed on the
Shelton campus, the Central Shop on Johns Prairie Road and the Belfair Shop.
Building 8, located on the Shelton campus, includes administrative services, accounting
services, environmental services, engineering and construction services and geographic
information services. The Information Services Section of Equipment Rental & Revolving Fund
(ER&R) is located a block away in Building 9. Road Maintenance and the Vehicle Maintenance
Section of ER&R share the Central Shop facility located on Johns Prairie Road approximately 3miles north of Shelton. A small maintenance crew is located at the satellite shop in Belfair to
service roads in North Mason County.
Public Works has outgrown the Shelton campus facilities. The buildings located at the central
shop are over 50-years old, overcrowded and inefficient. The vehicle maintenance shop lacks
several modern amenities like insulation, women's restroom and building ventilation systems. A
lack of sufficient storage facilities results in expensive road maintenance equipment being stored
outside in the elements.
As a result, Public Works proposes to develop a master plan and construct a multi-use facility to
house the entire department. This will result in better communication and coordination of the
various sections in the department. A shared multi-use facility will provide more efficient use of
space and county resources. The Belfair Shop, however, will continue to operate as a satellite
facility.
Financing the planned multi-use facility requires the use of grants, loans, and county road funds.
Project costs shown range in accuracy from + or- 40% to + or- 15%. Each project cost sheet
identifies the accuracy of the estimated costs shown, based on the following scale:
•
"Planning Level" -The least accurate of costs estimates, in the range of + or- 40%. Cost
estimates at this level are usually based on a project concept and some assessment of
relative scale, or annual program amounts commensurate with a level of activity sufficient to
accomplish the intent of the program over time.
•
"Design Report" - Moderate accuracy, in the range of+ or- 30%. Based on design report
evaluation of options and an assessment of project elements and associated costs.
•
"Engineer's Estimate"- Most accurate estimate, in the range of+ or -15%. These estimates
are based on a project design or significant completion of design work.

Description: Public Works is in the early stages of negotiation to acquire property in the
vicinity of Sandhill Elementary School for the location of the new Belfair Shop. The Shop will
include a work staging area, vehicle maintenance bay, crews lunch/meeting room, restrooms &
shower facilities, offices, vehicle and equipment storage and materials storage.
Justifications: The current Belfair Shop is very old, it is located in a residential neighborhood
adjacent to Hood Canal and does not have it's own water source. The Shop is hooked up to the
neighbor's well. Concerns have been expressed about the proximity of the material storage to
the Canal. The site is woefully inadequate for the road maintenance services being provided to
the north end of the County. If the land trade negotiations are successful, there would be no
capital outlay for the land and the shop would be in a much more appropriate location.

Description: Public Works will be developing selected sites at various locations across the
County to better serve the requirements of maintenance activities such as: clearing and grading,
installing wells and water systems, installing electric power to support site services, constructing
equipment/materials storage buildings and facilities, paving storage sites and developing roads
on the properties. Acquisition of individual properties will supplement existing property holdings
to provide for uses such as sites for stormwater treatment facilities and disposal sites for ditch
spoils and slide materials from maintenance or construction excavations.
Justifications: The changing mandates and requirements of road maintenance necessitate the
expansion I upgrade of certain facilities, while the need to develop stormwater detention facilities
and ditch spoil disposal sites require the purchase of property in specific locations.

Planning Level
Description: The County Road Fund owns property on Shelton-Matlock Road that is currently
used as a fenced materials and equipment storage yard. The construction of a Pole Barn type
Structure on this site will help to facilitate the efficient deployment of crews and equipment to the
south end of the County, particularly during snow and ice conditions. The price below reflects a
fully enclosed metal structure.
Justifications: Currently crews assigned to maintain, plow and de-ice the south portion of the
County must go to the Central Shop to get the equipment needed to respond. When doing
scheduled maintenance in the south end, the crews end up using valuable working time
traveling to and from the Central Shop transporting heavy equipment, vehicles, tools and
materials needed for their work. One of the Public Work's long range goals is the placement of
satellite maintenance yards in several locations in the county to improve response and
efficiency.

Description: The County Road Fund owns approximately 85 acres located at the intersection
of U.S. Highway 101 and State Road 102. A design consultant has been selected and it is
anticipated that the design will be complete by early spring of 2007, with construction beginning
in the summer of 2007. The facility will serve County Road Administrative, Engineering and
Maintenance divisions as well as Equipment Rental Administrative, Information Services and
Mechanical Shop. Emergency Services and the new County Emergency Operations Center will
also be located in the new facility. Public Works will be financing the majority of this project with
a LOCAL Loan from the State Treasurers Office. Design work and site preparation will be done
with Public Works funds.
Justifications: The Central Shop used by the Road Maintenance division and the ER&R
Mechanical Shop has been identified as a priority replacement due to it's age, condition and
safety concerns. Road Administration & Engineering have completely outgrown the current office
space and have personnel in other buildings and in hallways. The Emergency Services
department currently rents space from the Port, but the space does not comply with Homeland
Security's access restriction standards and the infrastructure is not reliable enough to serve as
the County's Emergency Operations Center.

VI. 10 FINANCE PLAN
Introduction
This section discusses Mason County capital facilities needs and related funding sources. As
required under the Growth Management Act (GMA) a six-year finance plan has been prepared
for the years 2006 to at least the year 2011 for those facilities currently, or to be, owned and
operated by the County.
The following facilities are included in the financial planning:

Only County owned and operated facilities, except for the community-based wastewater systems
for rural activity centers, are included in the finance analysis. Several alternatives have been
suggested to deal with the problem of providing water and wastewater service in areas outside
the existing utility service area in which growth is forecast. The service area for the solid waste
utility is county-wide.
The finance plan identifies reasonably reliable funding sources, and forecasts revenue and
expenses to at least the year 2011. Funding varies depending on the facility. The different
financing methods, public or private, could have significant implications on the cost of utility
service. Potential funding sources that could be used to fund unanticipated needs and shortfalls
are also discussed.
Financial Impact Overview
The financial impact for capital facility improvements have been analyzed for the six year
planning period. Information on transportation can be found in the Transportation Chapter. A
summary of the six year improvement costs, revenues and financing is listed in Table 10-1. The

Capital Facilities
Water and Wastewater Systems
The County owns and operates water utilities in the Belfair and Rustlewood areas. The County
also operates water treatment facilities for Rustlewood and Beard's Cove. There is no expected
expansion in any of the service utility areas with the exception fo the Belfair sewer. A 20 year
plan has been developed for sewer expansion to serve the entire Belfair Urban Growth Area. A
financial plan and rate structure has been developed to accommodate this growth. The Belfair
Sewer Finance and Rate Forecast, Facility Expansion Map, and Phasing Program Map are
incorporated into this Chapter as Appendix A
Information provided in Table Vl.4-1 and the facility worksheets which follow it summarize the
planned water supply and sewer system capital improvements over the next six years.
Solid Waste
Table V1.4-2-presents revenue sources and expenditure levels for Mason County solid waste services
from 2006 to 2011. Further detail is provided in the facility worksheets that follow the table.
Municipal Buildings and Law Enforcement Facilities
The Facilities Steering Committee and the Criminal Justice Working Team, working with a consultant,
has assessed future County building needs. A report issued jointly by the Facilities Steering
Committee and Criminal Justice Working Team in early January, 1996, has identified four capital facility
projects. At this time, the Department of Facilities and Grounds proposes to fund and make necessary
improvements over a number of years. Table V1.1 0-2 shows the 2006-2011 plan.
Parks and Recreation
The County has identified over the six year period large number of park and recreation improvements.
The projects include improvements to existing parks and boat launches as well as the development of
new ball fields. The total cost for these improvements are expected to be approximately $13.9 million
(see Table V1.10-3).
Stormwater Management
Mason County created a stormwater utility in 2008. The initial emphasis for Stormwater
management will be placed on the Belfair/Allyn area. The utility outlines future expansion to
other areas of the County with the whole county being included within the boundaries fo the
utility by 2013. the County also adopted the 2005 Department of Ecology Stormwater Drainage
Manual and Low Impact Development Standards which will be enforced in the Belfair and Allyn
UGAs first with the entire county being subjected to the requirements as water quality monitoring
dictates. The following tables outline expected Capital projects in the stormwater utility in 2009 2014.

APPENDIX A
MASON COUNTY- BELFAIR SEWERING PROJECT
FINANCIAL AND RATE FORECAST .. JULY 8,
2008
Purpose
The purpose of this document is to provide a current financial forecast for the Belfair sewer
project, to support the County's efforts to receive GMA approval for the project.
A financial forecast was prepared with the Wastewater Management Plan. Since completion
of that document there have been significant changes to financial assumptions including
additional service areas, updated capital costs, and additional secured grants.
The County has existing sewer utilities with policies in place to support fiscally and financially
prudent operation of those entities. This forecast presents a rate forecast that modifies some
of those policy assumptions where it may bring the rate closer to an "affordable" range.
Doing so may bring on financial risk, and so two forecast scenarios are presented here: a
"conservative" scenario and an "affordability" scenario. In the conservative scenario, the
County's current policies continue to be used in the Belfair area. In the affordability scenario,
the County uses all policy options to make the rates as affordable as possible in the initial
years.
Data Sources and Assumptions
The capital financing analysis uses capital costs, project timing, and capital inflation rate as
projected and provided by CH2M Hill. Also provided were existing ERUs and new annual
connections, projected O&M costs and estimated timing of capital spending. Each set of
data was provided for four different phases including 1. Initial Connection (this is the Core
Service area evaluated in the Master Plan), 2. Old Belfair Hwy Connection, 3. New Kirk
Road Connection and 4. Southern Connection.
At the time of the forecast presented in the Master Plan, the County had secured $16 million
in grants and $2.4 million in state loans (SRF). The County has since secured a total of $24
million in grants and has $3 million of state loans available.
The forecast period includes 2008 through 2025. However, actual 2007 costs are included in
the summary and financing analysis in order to consider total costs and total resources for
the project.

Total
The capital costs for the Initial Connection are projected 2007 through 2010, with year 1 of
operation, 2011. This includes treatment plant costs for enough capacity to serve the four
identified service areas (at the projected rate of growth), as well as the infrastructure planned
to serve the Initial Connection service area.
Capital costs to build infrastructure to connect customers in the Old Belfair Hwy Connection
are planned for 2014 through 2016 with first year of operation targeted for 2017.
The New Kirk Road connection is projected to begin service in 2020 with capital spending in
the two years preceding, and the Southern Connection in 2025 after infrastructure is built in
2024.
Customer Base
The customer base is defined in Equivalent Residential Units (ERUs), and it is projected to
grow at 5% annually. The Sewer Master Plan completed in 2007 forecasted growth at about
9% annually, though, the financial projections in that plan also used the more conservative
rate of 5% annually.
The customer base is defined with two types of service connections: existing and new. The
analysis distinguishes between developed properties with existing permitted septic systems
(as of Jan 1 2008) and new connections since the sewer project has begun.
The following table summarizes the annual ERU projection used in the forecast.

Capital Facilities Charge- CFC (conversion/connection charges)
Calculation of a connection charge for the Belfair sewering project considers total project
costs, 2025 customer base, secured grants toward funding the identified capital costs and
reduction of unit costs to customers paying a ULID to fund a portion of their capital costs.
Separate charges are calculated for conversions (existing development) and new
development. In order to distinguish the separate charges, the connection charge for existing
development is referred to as a "conversion charge," while the charge for new development
continues to be referred to as a "connection charge."
The charges are calculated as three separate components of the total. One reason is so that
if a developer chooses to build and finance particular infrastructure ahead of the County
doing so, there is a clear dollar amount per ERU of credits that they may receive toward their
connection charge, based on the type of project they are building and for how many ERU

units. Another is to properly reflect the Old Belfair Hwy Connection ULID contribution and
adjust their connection charge accordingly. And finally, it is done to provide an opportunity
for existing development (as defined in the ERU section) to benefit from available grants
toward reduction of their treatment unit cost.
The total unit cost before adjustments is about $30,000 per ERU (using the number of ERUs
projected in 2025).
The ULID-funded projects (in the Old Belfair Hwy Connection service area) are then
deducted from the cost total. The ERU basis is also adjusted to recognize ERUs served by
the ULID-funded projects.
The number of ERUs served by the identified treatment costs through 2025 total 1,783.
ERUs served by the trunk and collection costs after removing the Old Belfair Hwy Connection
portion total 1,413.
Capital Financing
As discussed in the Master Plan, utility formation requires consideration of unique cash flow
constraints. An existing utility has an existing revenue stream and some level of cash
reserves to support capital financing and debt repayment. In the case of a new utility, capital
costs will be incurred preceding a revenue stream from a rate-paying customer base. Even
use of grant funds requires approximately 60 days of financing since funds are dispersed on
a reimbursement basis. The capital financing analysis developed for this rate projection uses
a mix of the County's funding and financing options to complete 2007 through 2010 capital
spending preceding connection of customer base.
The capital financing analysis considers use of the lowest cost funding options first and
balances the total financing need with those that have a greater rate impact. The financing
priority is as follows; 1. Secured grants (CTED), 2. Secured state loans (SRF), 3.
Accumulated cash reserves [from CFCs or projected Real Estate Excise Tax (REET) funds]
and 4. Revenue bonds.
An exception to this priority list is that the County is planning to fund the Old Belfair Hwy
Connection trunk and collection line costs with a ULID. The County would borrow funds to
finance those costs, and they would be repaid through property assessments within the
service area boundary.
In order to have funds available to finance the first 60 days of grant use, a combination of
SRF and grant use is projected to fund capital costs for each of the four years of capital
spending. Because SRF repayment begins the fiscal year after the first draw, debt service
obligations are projected begin ahead of year one of operation and therefore require another
County resource for repayment. The County has pledged $200,000 annually of REET
monies from the General Fund beginning in 2009 to help fund the project. These funds allow

the County to make SRF payments that are due ahead of the 2011 first year of operation.
Without the REET funds, the County would not be able to utilize all lowest cost financing
options first, but rather would need to issue revenue bonds and capitalize the interest for the
period preceding utility revenue collection.
Revenue bonds are needed to balance the net financing need after use of all available
grants, state loans and any available cash reserves. Revenue bonds not only affect rates
through debt repayment obligation, but also carry a security requirement, bond coverage.
Bond coverage defines an annual minimum level of revenue the utility must collect. The
coverage factor is a factor applied to the utility's revenue bond payment in each year of
repayment. It requires revenues be sufficient to make the bond repayment as well as an
additional percentage of that amount. For example a bond coverage factor of 1.25 requires
that rate revenue (along with any other eligible revenues) be sufficient to fund annual
operating and maintenance expenses plus 125% of the revenue bond payment. Coverage
will be discussed further with the rate projections.
The following table summarizes planned annual financing of the capital costs for this project.

'Old Belfair Hwy Connection collection/trunk costs
The County is planning on a ULID to finance the Old Belfair Hwy Connection infrastructure
costs, planned for 2014 through 2016, totaling $9,570,000 in current dollars and $15,930,949
in projected future dollars. The County would issue debt for the projected $16 million total
and repayment would occur through annual assessment revenue collected from the Old
Belfair Hwy Connection properties.
Secured grant funds are used from 2007 through 2010, totaling $24 million. SRF loan
proceeds are projected to be spent from 2008 through 2010. The balance of capital financing
needed for the Initial Connection period is $15,312,100. This consists of a projected $11.8
million in conventional municipal revenue bonds and $3.5 million of short-term financing.
The purpose of the short-term financing is to allow the County to use CFC revenue from
conversions and new connections in 2011 to reduce the rate burden from debt repayment.
Based on results of the connection charge analysis, an expected $4.1 million of CFC

revenue is anticipated to be collected in 2011. Of that, $400,000 is planned to support
existing annual debt service obligations, leaving $3.7 million available for project costs.
Since capital financing is completed before customers connect, it is assumed the County
could secure short-term financing for what could be repaid with the net available 2011 CFC
revenue. This reduces the debt repayment obligation from rates.
On July 5, 2008, the 2-year municipal bond yield was 2.75%. Assuming this interest rate and
a 0.5% issuance cost, the County could realize debt reduction of $3.5 million by using the
$3.7 million of 2011 CFC revenue.

The above capital financing summary represents a rate scenario in which some level of
available capital funds are used directly for debt repayment for rate relief, rather than
reserved and available for cash-funding capital. The most conservative scenario does not
consider capital revenues for debt repayment (with the exception of the short-term financing).
They are reserved in the Capital Fund and used to cash-fund future projects, which would
reduce the need for future revenue bonds.
The following table shows the capital financing summary for the more conservative forecast,
in which capital revenues are not utilized for debt repayment and are reserved in the Capital
Fund to cash-fund future projects.

There are four types of revenue considered to meet annual cash obligations. These include
revenue from rates, interest earnings on the operating fund, and use of REET funds and
CFC revenue toward debt repayment. In order to provide the greatest level of rate relief, a
scenario is provided that uses 100% of REET funds and $400,000 per year of CFC revenue
(which represents about 70% of total CFC revenue initially, going to under 20% by 2025)
toward annual debt repayment. The conservative alternative is that REET funds are used
only for debt repayment that precedes utility operation. In the remainder of the forecast,
REET funds are reserved for cash-funding future capital. CFC revenue is also reserved for
cash-funding future capital rather than supporting annual debt repayment obligations.
REET funds and CFC revenue are also considered in the coverage calculation. The
County's bond counsel has indicated that dedicated REET funds would be an eligible
revenue for the coverage calculation and that the County could specifically write them in to a
bond covenant as an eligible revenue source. The risk is the potential that the County will
not collect sufficient REET funds to make the full $200,000 support to the utility in a given
year. Similarly, due to the variable nature of revenue collection from CFCs, which are also
subject to economic conditions, there is risk associated with including CFCs in the coverage
calculation as eligible revenue. Typically, coverage is tested at a higher factor when
including CFCs.
The two scenarios vary in coverage calculation in that the conservative scenario tests
coverage at a 1.25 factor and excludes REET funds and CFCs as eligible revenues and the
scenario that targets affordability includes REET funds and 75% (an element of conservatism
within this scenario) of annual CFC revenue, though tests at a higher coverage factor of 1.50
The higher rate revenue need of the total cash and total coverage obligations becomes the
basis for setting rates. Coverage is the driving factor in most years before the second

service area begins operation. The total rate obligation, divided by the total ERUs in each
year results in a monthly unit cost per ERU. Because this amount varies annually and
typically trends down with ERU growth, operating reserves are managed to set a single rate
for periods within the forecast.

Sewer Connection Zone Characterization
Initial Connection Zone:
The area consists of scattered residential and the "core" commerical corridor for the Belfair
community. A majority of the commercial development is underutilized because of little organized
infrastructure, especially sewers. The area is the most problematic for the contribution of pollutants to
Hood Canal. The County has secured funds to construct a collection system and a Membrane
BioReactor (MBR) treatment facility to serve the area along State Route# 3 which transverses the
length of Belfair. Following the construction and commissioning of the NBR treatment plant all
properties within 500 feet of the initial sewers lines will be required to connect to the Belfair sewer
system. All on-site expenses incurred for connection will be borne by the property owner. Once
connection occurs a monthly utility rate will be collected from each property.
Old Belfair Highway Connection:
The area is a larger urban density residential community north of the Belfair "core" commercial
corridor. Many of the owner occupied structures are pre-and early posts World War II stock. The
structures use on-site systems as their method of sewage disposal. Because of older on-site systems,
denser development patterns and high ground water tables the area likely contributing nitrates and
fecal contamination to the canal. The area is low-to moderate income and financing large sewer
improvements will be difficult without Federal and state assistance. The county will relay on grants and
loans and County supported Utility Local Improvement Districts (ULID) to develop sewers in the area.
Newkirk Road Connection Zone:
The area is divided into two sectors. The area to the north is vacant, larger parcels held by four
developers. It is planned and zoned for commercial and industrial development. The area to the south
is comprised of vacant properties still in large parcels with a single owner. The land is planned and
zoned for higher destiny residential development. There is current demand for the development of the
northern area. The development of the sewer collection system to serve the northern area will occur as
the MBR plant is developed at developer expense. The southern area will remain in large tracts until
near the end of the UGA planning period.
Southern Connection:
The area is the most difficult to develop because of environmental constraints. There is some
scattered low-density residential development but most of the land remains in large undeveloped
tracts. Portions of the area will be impacted by the development of the Belfair by-pass. The properties
will remain vacant until the later years of the planning period.
