Newly completed rain garden and sidewalks along the Kenthorpe frontage.

Final Water Treatment Plant Construction Update

This is it! We have reached the end of construction. The temporary chain link fence is down, and the public areas are now open. To say this has been long-awaited, is an understatement. We are pleased to announce that we finally made it!

Long-term construction is exhausting and disruptive. WTP neighbors, we thank you for your endurance, patience and understanding throughout this project. Water is life. We are grateful to you for allowing the City of Lake Oswego and City of Tigard to secure a safe and reliable water supply for our communities’ future.

Landscaping continues at the WTP

Yards of soil have been places around the area.

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.

Extension of the good neighbor cedar fence near the new pathway will be completed soon, followed by the entrance gates, which completes the new secure perimeter. Site lighting in the new public areas will be tested in the next few weeks.
