Tigard Council Tours Water System
Jon Holland from the Partnership talks with Mayor Cook
On Wednesday May 1st, Tigard Mayor Cook and Councilors Woodard and Snider toured the Lake Oswego Water Treatment Plant and the current River Intake Pump Station (RIPS) on the Clackamas River. Staff from the Partnership and from Tigard showed them the existing water systems and presented information about the upgrades and expansions planned for Tigard’s and Lake Oswego’s water customers.
"It was so enlightening to learn about the process we are developing to bring Tigard's customers the highest quality drinking water,” said Tigard Mayor John Cook. “This partnership with Lake Oswego has been in place for over 40 years, and I didn't realize we have worked together for so long. It gives me confidence to see this process underway and so well-planned."
Construction Scheduled to Begin in Gladstone
Construction for the new Lake Oswego Tigard Water Partnership’s Clackamas River intake pump station (RIPS) will start in the next few months.
Beginning in May 2013, the contractor will prepare the staging area for the RIPS upgrade. The staging area will be located near the existing river intake pump station on Clackamas Blvd. near Portland Ave. We expect that actual in-water construction will begin in July of this year. The contractor’s work area will include construction fencing, some materials and equipment storage and construction trailers. By July, a large crane on a platform will be located there as well, to enable the in-water work to take place.
A meeting with neighbors is planned for May 20. For more information, visit the meetings page.
Using a 70-foot drill, the Lake Oswego-Tigard Water Partnership started testing the soil surrounding the water treatment plant last week in anticipation of rebuilding the plant, which sits in West Linn.
