Partnership Celebrates River Intake and Gladstone Pipeline Milestones at Special Event
On Monday, Nov. 2, the rains held off long enough for Gladstone neighbors, Lake Oswego Tigard Water Partnership staff, contractors and several elected officials to celebrate the completion of the water pipeline in Gladstone and new river intake pump station along the Clackamas River.
Gladstone Mayor Dominick Jacobellis, Lake Oswego City Councilor Skip O’Neill, Tigard Mayor John Cook and Water Treatment Plant manager Kari Duncan delivered brief remarks thanking neighbors for their patience during construction and highlighting several key features of the new water system including its resiliency and sustainability. The Partnership also presented Mayor Jacobellis with a $2,500 donation to benefit the Gladstone Seniors Foundation, which funds the Gladstone Senior Center. After officially opening the gate and cutting the ribbon, attendees were treated to behind-the-scenes site tours and refreshments from local businesses.
The Lake Oswego Tigard Water Partnership would like to once again thank the Gladstone community for its patience and support while these key pieces of the water system were built.
