POLL: Are you optimistic the West Point Wastewater Treatment plant will be fully operational by April 30, 2017?

Millions of gallons of raw sewage and untreated runoff poured into the Puget Sound when the West Point Wastewater Treatment Plant malfunctioned in February.

What's being done to fix this environmental disaster? Will taxpayers see a big rate hike? Will clear answers come from the catastrophic event?
