Port returns $4.8 million in wetlands funding

The Port of Sunnyside wetland/pipeline funding will be returned to the granting parties following action taken by port commissioners Monday night.

The port staff will be notifying Yakima County’s Supporting Investments in Economic Development Board, Washington state’s Community Economic Revi-talization Board and the Department of Ecology of the port’s decision to relinquish $4,896,692 in grant and loan funding for the proposed wetlands project.

Earlier this year, the commission made the decision to drop the wetlands project along the Yakima River, creating a need to return the grant money and reject the funding loans.
