Waluga Reservoir

Waluga Reservoir

Tree pruning next week

On Wednesday, July 20, workers will begin pruning trees located around the Waluga Reservoir 1. Tree branches located approximately 10 ft. above and around the perimeter of the reservoir roof will be pruned and trimmed. One dead tree will also be removed. This work is expected to take one day to complete. A certified arborist will be on site to monitor the pruning.

Neighbors can expect to see and hear a crew of workers, chain saws, a wood chipper and dump trucks to haul wood chips and debris off site. Crews and equipment will access the site from 4800 Carman Drive. Work hours will be 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. Tree pruning will be completed by a local Lake Oswego Company, Tree Care Unlimited.

The importance of WR1

WR1 is a crucial component to the Partnership’s system to provide drinking water to Tigard and Lake Oswego residents. Both Waluga Reservoirs (1 and 2) work together in tandem to store and provide clean, drinking water for both communities. Once the roof is replaced, WR1 is expected to provide safe, reliable water storage for at least 50 years.
