Program Update Highlights
South Hillsboro Area Pipeline Project — Water Supply staff are working closely with partners to plan, design, and build the pipeline through the Cornelius Pass Road and TV Highway intersection. This inter-agency cooperation sets the stage for future coordination when planned Cornelius Pass Road and South Hillsboro street improvements and extensions occur. Visit the project website for more information.
Community Outreach —Water Supply staff continue to contact property owners along the proposed pipeline route requesting permission to enter their properties for survey work. This access allows Water Supply staff to complete wetland, cultural, geotechnical, and other environmental studies on properties that may be needed – either temporarily or permanently - for construction staging or placement of infrastructure when construction begins. Geotechnical drilling is already underway along some sections of the route, and land surveyors are documenting topographical features along the approximately 30-mile route. Survey work will continue throughout autumn.
124th Avenue Partnership Project — Work continues on this opportunity project with Washington County. Installation of the pipeline portion of the project is anticipated to begin this fall, with pipe delivery expected in October. The pipe for this section of the project was purchased from local pipe manufacturer Northwest Pipe Company. Visit the 124th Avenue website for more information.
Kinsman Road Partnership Project — Construction has begun on this cost-saving opportunity project with the City of Wilsonville and the Federal Highway Administration. The first segment of water supply pipeline will be delivered and installed in mid-October!! Construction is anticipated to conclude late in 2017. Visit the Kinsman Road project website for more information.
