Landscaping continues at the WTP

Water Treatment Plant Construction Update

It’s been a while since we’ve updated neighbors about work at the water treatment plant, so please read on for the latest news.

Work Hours

Due to the excessive heat wave upon us, the landscapers plan to start work an hour earlier each day for the next two weeks (6 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday to Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturdays). Work will involve the use of small equipment already on site to pick up and place trees and hand work for planting shrubs etc. Any large landscaping trucks will access the site after 7 a.m.

This early start time has been approved by West Linn’s City Manager.

Sourced from the Clackamas River, your water goes through multiple stages of treatment and filtration to provide water to more than 90,000 residents every day.

On June 9, 2016, the water supply Tigard had been purchasing from the Portland Water Bureau was shut off — and taps within Tigard's service area began pouring water from the Clackamas River.

Ozone system up and running; WTP paving to take place next week

Water Treatment Plant Construction Update

Major site work is expected to be complete in June. Unfortunately, due to record-setting wet weather, installation of the landscaping has been extended until late July. Crews have been postponed with completing site work and installing the irrigation system due to saturated soil conditions across the site. This has also pushed back installation of the hundreds of trees, shrubs and groundcovers to be installed across the 9-acre site.
