Concrete pours complete: the Waluga Reservoir has a new roof!

Waluga Reservoir 1 Roof Replacement Construction Update

Recent aerial photos captured in early March show half of the newly poured roof, with two remaining quadrants ready to be poured (rebar and shoring support also shown).

Paving & Traffic Notice: Oswego Village & State Street near Starbucks Wed. 4/5/17

Last December, emergency repair work was conducted on a broken sewer line and man hole located in the Oswego Village parking lot and a portion of State Street, near Starbucks and the 365 market. Throughout the winter, a temporary pavement patch has been in place over the repaired sewer line. Crews have been waiting for the weather to improve before conducting the final restoration and repaving work.

Tomorrow, Wednesday April 5, the final paving will take place between 7 a.m. – 4 p.m. within the Oswego Village parking lot. During this time, the access directly in front of Starbucks on State Street will be closed. Access to Starbucks and the 365 market will be available at the Oswego Village main traffic signal at State Street and Northshore Road. Pedestrian and customer access will be maintained at all times.

To complete the paving work, a single northbound lane will be closed on State Street, near Starbucks, between 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. Please watch for signage and expect some delays during this time.

Operator training underway on the new ozone system

Water Treatment Plant Construction Update

On Thursday, the third and final crane that was used for construction was dismantled and removed off-site. As construction comes to a close, more equipment and materials will be leaving the site.

In mid-April, crews expect to remove the large construction trailers currently located on the western corner of the site. Removal is expected to take about a week. A small trailer will be present for the remaining work, near where the carpenters' shed was located on the west side of the site.

Lake Oswego-Tigard Water Partnership inviting neighbors to its garden

by Patrick Malee, The Times - March 26, 2017

In the news...

After four long years of construction, the end is finally in sight this summer for the Lake Oswego-Tigard Water Partnership (LOT) water plant.

To describe the atmosphere of relief at the construction site as "meditative" might be a bit much, but that time will come with some help from the LOT itself. As construction in West Linn's Robinwood neighborhood nears its projected end date in early June, the partnership — a joint endeavor between Tigard and Lake Oswego to provide a source of drinking water for both communities — is working to install a stormwater basin that will double as a "meditation garden" for residents to enjoy while passing through the site.

Early work on 3/20 for Waluga Reservoir roof pour

Special Construction Update: Waluga Reservoir 1 Roof Replacement

Due to rainy weather and issues with concrete availability, this week's planned concrete pours have been postponed. Weather permitting, crews plan to pour the third quadrant for the roof on Monday, March 20.

To accommodate concrete availability, the City Manager has approved work to begin an hour earlier - the pumper truck will arrive at 6 a.m., with the pour beginning at 6:30 a.m. This will help crews to complete the roof replacement this spring.
