Cities save millions on water plant project

By Geoff Pursinger, The Times

On June 27, the Lake Oswego-Tigard Water Partnership received a low bid from Stayton general contractor Slayden Construction Group, which announced that it would build the new plant in West Linn for $66.1 million, well below what the two cities had estimated the project would cost.
