River Intake Construction Update

Crews prepare for the next stage of forming struts and decking

Crews prepare for the next stage of forming struts and decking

Due to high water in the Clackamas River, work to stabilize the cofferdam and clean up the flooded area between the cofferdam interior and exterior of the new intake structure has been delayed. This work should be complete next week.

Crews are continuing to prepare supports and scaffolding for the next stage of forming the pump station floor decking. Once the cofferdam cleanup is complete, a concrete pour will occur for the interior struts of the intake.

Neighbors may notice an increase in noise and truck traffic during the concrete pour. Starting this Saturday, work hours will be increasing to six days a week, from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday to Saturday.

We apologize for the inconvenience this work may cause and thank you for your patience as construction progresses.
