The Willamette Water Supply Program wishes to thank everyone who attended the recent open houses. Your input is greatly appreciated!
More than 800 people attended the open house or participated in the online open house. Participants said that coordinating pipeline construction with other improvement projects (like transportation projects) and utility work as the main benefit of the Project. Construction impacts, particularly the potential for traffic congestion and impact on businesses and residents, was the primary concern expressed by attendees.
The input from the open houses is being used to help define the preferred pipeline route, coordinate construction with other agencies, and better plan for construction impacts. A preferred route for the project, from Wilsonville to Hillsboro and Beaverton, will be identified in 2015, with more public outreach planned for summer 2015.
