The Port of Mattawa, Washington is working to expand and improve the infrastructure of its wastewater treatment system to accommodate the increasing growth of the wine-making industry in central Washington.

This will support other food processing in the Mattawa area, according to NBC Right Now. The outcome will help to retain and create jobs and increase economic development in the south Grant County/Mattawa area.

Washington State’s wine production has more than doubled over the past two decades, according to NBC Right Now.

The Port of Mattawa’s is requesting capital budget and/or infrastructure funding for Phase 4 of the Port’s wastewater infrastructure improvement project, reported NBC Right Now.
