Water Treatment Plant Procurements – Sundt Construction

The Willamette Water Supply System (WWSS) Water Treatment Plant (WTP_1.0) is a new, seismically resilient water treatment plant with an initial treated water capacity of 60 million gallons per day. WTP_1.0 is in the City of Sherwood in Washington County, Oregon. The water treatment plant construction will require participation from many subcontractors and suppliers.

A guiding principle established for the Willamette Water Supply System is to provide contracting opportunities that benefit the local economy, provide jobs, and support regional economic development. Sundt Construction (Sundt), the Construction Manager/General Contractor (CM/GC) for the Willamette Water Supply Water Treatment Plant (WTP_1.0) Project, will support this guiding principle to allow and encourage businesses to participate in the opportunity to bid amongst 70+ work categories that will be distributed in three (3) bidding opportunities.  The Portland region is a thriving major metropolitan area with several companies able to perform in each of the work categories needed to construct the WWSS WTP.
