Upcoming Opportunities/Timeline

The Program schedule includes the various construction components needed through 2026 when water will begin to flow to the Tualatin Valley Water District, the City of Hillsboro and the City of Beaverton water customers through the new water system. This gives the business community a look into the timing of opportunities for the more than one-billion dollar program. More than 30 procurements for design, construction, and related supporting services are expected, and additional business opportunities will result for sub-contractors and suppliers.

The Willamette Water Supply Program (WWSP) has pre‐qualified eleven prime contractors to bid on upcoming water transmission pipeline construction. Procurement timing and approach are subject to change as WWSP needs evolve.
