That’s close to, but not above, the water use target of 12 million gallons per day (mgd) established for the City of Lake Oswego’s Beat the Peak summer water conservation campaign.

This is the largest public works project ever undertaken by either city, with plans to construct six facilities across four communities. The estimated project cost is $249 million. Facilities include a river intake pump station on the Clackamas River, 10 miles of pipelines, an expanded and modernized drinking water treatment plant in West Linn, a new storage reservoir in Lake Oswego and a new pump station in Tigard.

Lake Oswego Water Supply Unaffected by Portland Water Bureau Contamination

Lake Oswego Water Supply Unaffected by Portland Water Bureau Contamination

Last weekend’s Boil Water Notice from Portland Water Bureau impacted areas west of the Willamette River supplied by the Bureau. Customers served by Lake Oswego’s own water supply system were not affected, but since neighbors in the Lake Grove Water District and Tigard receive their water from Portland’s system, they were under notice.

The Portland Water Bureau Boil Water Notice has been lifted for all its service areas. See the Bureau’s official statement here.

The Lake Oswego Tigard Water Partnership’s future treatment plans will give Lake Oswego and Tigard water customers even better drinking water by 2016. To find out more about Lake Oswego’s future treatment plans, please click here.
