What is this Project?
This project increases system capacity to deliver high-quality drinking water from the Clackamas River to the communities of Lake Oswego and Tigard. Together these two communities can secure long-term access to clean, safe water for less than it would cost them to do it alone. Learn more...
Take a drone’s-eye-view tour of the progress at the Lake Oswego Tigard Water Partnership’s facilities under construction. This unique view helps us gain a better perspective about the types of activities that are occurring at these vital sites that will eventually help deliver high-quality drinking water to the communities of Lake Oswego and Tigard for years to come.
An example of the type of work being performed at night along Highway 43.
Highway 43 construction began this week in West Linn
Preliminary pipeline construction activities (saw-cutting asphalt and equipment mobilization) began on Monday, Dec. 8 at night on Highway 43 in West Linn near Mapleton Drive. On Sunday, Dec. 14, crews expect to begin nighttime pipe installation starting at the intersection of Mapleton Drive, working north along Highway 43 towards Lake Oswego. Schedules are subject to change.
The Lake Oswego Tigard Water Partnership achieved a major project milestone this fall with the installation of a new 36-inch diameter waterline under the Willamette River. This monumental endeavor was accomplished with minimal impacts to riverbeds, water and wildlife.
This short video shares the story of this remarkable feat of engineering ingenuity.
