Waluga Reservoir Good Neighbor Plan Meeting #3

The Lake Oswego Tigard Water Partnership plans to install a water pipeline and build a new drinking water reservoir adjacent to the existing reservoir in the Waluga Neighborhood. The Good Neighbor Plan (GNP), developed with your input, will document the Partnership’s commitment to being a good neighbor during design, construction, and ongoing operations of the reservoir.

At our last meeting, we presented the first half of the GNP Draft and gathered neighbor feedback. At the January meeting, we will review neighbor input and share the second half of the GNP Draft.

This is your chance to be involved with the process. You are invited to review and discuss the GNP which was created using neighbor input from personal interviews and past meetings.
