As part of our mission and in support of the Kalama Manufacturing and Marine Export Facility, the Port is responsible for building two assets inside the shoreline jurisdiction—the proposed wharf for ship moorage and export, and a new well for industrial process water. We’ve done our due diligence to ensure an environmentally—and economically—responsible community asset in the new facility.
The Port’s wharf and well will not only provide benefit to the entire community, but will serve facilities that brings jobs and opportunity to our community— all while generating millions of dollars in taxes for our schools, roads and infrastructure. It is simply a win-win:
- 688 total jobs during operations, including 192 direct jobs and 496 indirect and induced jobs
- $21 million in annual payroll for direct jobs
- Estimated $30 to $40 million in annual tax payments to state and local authorities
