The Willamette Water Supply Program (Program), a drinking water infrastructure partnership between the Tualatin Valley Water District and the City of Hillsboro, has released its baseline design and construction schedule – a milestone that sets a multitude of business opportunities into motion for the next decade.
“This major water infrastructure project spans across five cities in Washington County, including Wilsonville, Tualatin, Sherwood, Beaverton, and Hillsboro,” notes Dave Kraska, Willamette Water Supply Program Director. “We have divided the work up into smaller pieces over several years. This allows and provides local and regional businesses of all sizes an opportunity to be a part of this historic project that will benefit the local economy, provide jobs, and support regional economic development.”
The Program schedule includes the various construction components needed through 2026 when water will begin to flow to Tualatin Valley Water District, City of Hillsboro, and City of Beaverton water customers through the new water system.
