The eastern pipeline route for the Willamette Water Supply System (WWSS) is being updated to mostly follow portions of SW Scholls Ferry Rd. east of SW Roy Rogers Rd. The updated project is called the Metzger Pipeline East (MPE_1.0). The project merges already planned construction by the Tualatin Valley Water District (TVWD) into ongoing plans for the WWSS and the City of Beaverton. The project more efficiently utilizes TVWD and City of Beaverton infrastructure to maximize cost-effectiveness and reduce community and environmental impacts from construction.
The project enhances the reliability and seismic resiliency of drinking water service for City of Beaverton and Tualatin Valley Water District (TVWD) customers. Construction of this new system provides jobs and benefits the local economy today and is designed to withstand a large earthquake or other natural disaster so that water service can be restored quickly and our communities can recover sooner.
