Washington County has submitted its plans to the city of Woodbury for a proposed household hazardous waste facility.
County director of public works Don Theisen presented an update of the project to the Washington County Board at its July 8 meeting.
The facility is planned to be constructed on 60 acres of county-owned land on the corner of Bailey Road and Cottage Grove Drive. The county is planning to construct the facility, because the lease on its current facility in Oakdale is up in June 2009 and will not be renewed.
The proposed facility is planned to be located next to the county’s south maintenance shop, which is on the north end of the parcel.
The city of Woodbury owns a parcel adjacent to the county property and may use it for a future fire station as residential development is expected to spread south toward Bailey Road in the next 20 years.
The total cost of the county’s project is estimated to be $4.4 million dollars. The city of Woodbury is expected to review the site plan for the project later this year.
