LO Surveys Water Transmission Line

The Lake Oswego Tigard Water Partnership will survey Lake Oswego's treated water transmission line over the next three to four months. Drivers and residents will notice a survey van and crews working along the pipeline route. The city asks asks drivers to use caution near work areas.  Any traffic disruptions will be minimal and brief.

The effort begins on Highway 43 in West Linn near the City's Water Treatment Plant. From there it will trace the water line route through Lake Oswego, along a portion of North Shore Road, Iron Mountain Blvd. and Douglas Circle, through Waluga Park, then down Bonita Road. Click here to see a map of the existing line.

Surveyors will be looking for anything that might affect the cost of a future water line replacement.
