Project expected to reach 75 percent completion this summer

But the end is finally within sight for the project, which is estimated to be about 60 percent complete, according to LOT Project Director Joel Komarek. The project is expected to reach the 75 percent completion mark this summer, when new filters are installed at the water treatment plant site.

Waluga Reservoir 1 Roof Replacement

The Waluga Reservoir site, located on Carman Drive in Lake Oswego, now houses two reservoirs – known as Waluga Reservoirs 1 and 2.

Recently, the newly constructed Waluga Reservoir 2 was placed into service, which allowed the existing Waluga Reservoir 1 to be completely drained for planned improvements. While the reservoir was drained, a thorough structural inspection was conducted on the interior and exterior of the tank. The inspection revealed that the wall and floor elements are in excellent condition structurally and seismically.
