In May 2013 Industrial Park at TransAlta selected Gibbs & Olson to provide engineering and permit assistance services for the first phase infrastructure of improvements to 143 acres of reclaimed mining lands. This project will prepare the site for industrial use and will help attract economic opportunities to Lewis County. Improvements to be completed include extending water, sewer, and roadway infrastructure. The project also includes site work consisting of excavation, filling, grading, ground cover, and storm drainage infrastructure to provide 50-75 acres suitable for specific site development by third parties. Funding sources for the project include a $1 million grant from the Washington Department of Commerce and a $2.8 million grant from the US Economic Development Administration.
