About The District

The Harbor Sanitary District was formed by local residents to meet the needs of a thriving community. In 1974 Harbor Sanitary District signed an intergovernmental agreement with the City of Brookings for treatment of sewage at the Brookings (regional) waste water treatment plant. Four pump stations convey sewage from within the Harbor Sanitary District boundary to a common pumping station; then to the Regional Plant in Brookings. In total Harbor Sanitary District maintains approximately 16.5 miles of 8 and 12 inch gravity and transmission lines which ex­tend through approximately 1250 acres. The boundaries of the Harbor Sanitary District are Benham Lane to Olsen Lane to Oceanview Drive to Holly Lane and to the Ocean. E. Benham Lane to Harbor Hills to the Chetco River. The upgrade to the Regional Waste Water Treatment Plant in Brookings was started in 1989 and completed in 2001.
