Willamette Water Supply Program Preferred Pipeline Route Identified
The Willamette Water Supply team is pleased to share the preferred pipeline route. The preferred pipeline route stretches more than 30 miles from Wilsonville to Hillsboro and Beaverton. The route reflects the criteria established early in the selection process and the insights provided by local government, state and federal agencies, and the public. In particular, the route corridor shown considers opportunities of planned new or improved roadway construction projects to reduce costs and public inconvenience.
The route remains a work in progress. The next step is to work with each of the affected communities and Washington County to refine engineering and construction planning documents. These in turn will produce reliable cost projections. Once complete, we will develop plans with each community to establish the final route corridors and construction schedules.
The Willamette Water Supply team’s goal is to provide a reliable source of fresh water to Washington County homes and businesses by 2026. 
Upcoming City Council Meetings and Work Sessions
Team members have already met with the city councils of Wilsonville and Sherwood. The councils provided valuable input and indicated their appreciation with the coordination across the region and with each of the partner jurisdictions. This coordination produced a proposed route intended to consider the needs and concerns of the communities. We are looking forward to continuing the dialogue as the next steps in planning, permitting and construction preparation get underway.
The Willamette Water Supply team will be meeting with more city councils to present the preferred route and to gather feedback over the next several weeks.
