EDMONDS, Wash. —

Construction on a $93 million sewage treatment plant in south Snohomish County is nearly two years behind schedule and $400,000 over budget.

Work at the Alderwood Water & Wastewater District's sewage treatment plant site between Edmonds and Mukilteo is expected to wrap up in the next few months. The project was supposed to be finished two summers ago.

The Everett Herald reports ( http://tinyurl.com/ccfvxhx) that the roof on the solids-handling building leaks, and there's still trouble with a major piece of equipment that processes waste. Without that equipment, the district has had to truck waste from the site to other plants in the region. The Herald reports that records show that alone cost nearly $1 million in 2012.

Work began in 2008 to double the plant's sewage-treatment capacity.
