Hutton Settlement receives $152K grant to help with aging sewer lines

The Hutton Settlement Children's Home will use a $152,000 grant award from the MJ Murdock Charitable Trust of Vancouver, WA to replace more than 2,000 feet of old sewer lines. 

Construction on the $325,000 project will begin right away and should last about 5 weeks. 

"Once completed, the new system will provide reliable, low-maintenance sewer service for at least the next 50 years, eliminate annual emergency costs and will ensure that Hutton is not threatened with an unexpected shut-down due to sewer lines collapsing."

The mission of the M.J. Murdock Charitable Trust is to "enrich the quality of life in the Pacific Northwest by providing grants to organizations that seek to strengthen the region's educational, social, cultural and spiritual base in creative and sustainable ways. The Hutton Settlement is a natural fit for the trust's support and funding priorities," the organization said in a press release on Friday.
