The Scholls Ferry Road Pipeline Project is a 7.0-mile section of the overall 30+ mile Willamette Water Supply System pipeline. The Willamette Water Supply Program team is coordinating with public and private road improvement projects in the Roy Rogers, Scholls Ferry and Tile Flat Road areas to install the new water pipeline. Partnering on these road projects reduces community and neighborhood impacts by eliminating the need for multiple construction projects.
This section of pipeline is being designed and constructed in three phases:
- The pipeline north of Beef Bend Road to Scholls Ferry Road (PLM 5.1) is a partnership with Washington County’s Roy Rogers Road widening project. Visit Washington County’s website for information about road improvements. Construction is underway and anticipated to be complete by fall 2021.
- Construction of the pipeline from Scholls Ferry Road to Grabhorn Road (PLM 5.2) was coordinated with new residential development along Scholls Ferry and Tile Flat Roads. Construction began in 2019 and is now complete.
- Design of the third phase, Grabhorn Road to Rosedale Road (PLM 5.3), is complete. Construction is anticipated to begin in early 2022. This section of the pipeline will travel north along Grabhorn Road to the new water storage tanks on Cooper Mountain, and then west on private property until it reaches the existing Bonneville Power Administration (BPA) corridor. The alignment then moves north following the BPA corridor until Farmington Road. North of Farmington Road, the alignment is within a potential future road corridor through private property.
