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...
On Oct. 9, the Lake Oswego Tigard Water Partnership hosted a ribbon-cutting and celebration event to mark the end of construction for Waluga Reservoir 2 and related site improvements.
Neighbors, staff and crews gathered to hear Lake Oswego Mayor Kent Studebaker and Tigard Mayor John Cook discuss the importance of the new water system, mark this significant milestone, and thank neighbors for their patience during construction. Attendees were also treated to site tours, which highlighted the reservoir’s seismic resiliency and new system features.

Lake Oswego-Tigard Water Partnership designed to be energy efficient, environmentally responsible and earthquake resistant
A year and a half shy of its projected completion date, the Lake Oswego-Tigard Water Partnership received a rebate check for more than $82,000 from Energy Trust of Oregon.
The check was in recognition of the project’s use of energy-efficient equipment — specifically the upgraded variable-frequency drives at its River Intake Pump Station that now require much less energy to pump water from the Clackamas River.
