Coming to a Neighborhood Near You!

You and your neighbors are invited to attend an open house to discuss possible routes for a new drinking water pipeline to serve Washington County residents.  This fall, the Willamette Water Supply Program team will hold a series of open houses in Beaverton, Hillsboro and other cities in Washington County as well as one in Wilsonville. More than 20,000 people will be invited — by direct mail — that live along a possible water pipeline route. The open houses allow you and your neighbors to provide feedback on the potential pipeline routes and ask any questions you may have. If you are unable to attend one of the scheduled open houses, you may participate in a virtual open house available online from October 14-November 28 at

The Water Supply team looks forward to seeing you at an open house near you!

Working together brings benefits

The Water Supply team is working closely with our local City and County partners to identify opportunities to coordinate our program with future roadway improvements and extensions. The 124th Avenue Extension Project, which includes improvements to Tonquin and Grahams Ferry Roads as well, is a perfect example of this collaboration! Washington County and Water Supply team members are working together to combine the 124th Avenue extension with the water pipeline installation before the road is built. This not only provides cost savings for both Washington County residents and ratepayers but also lessens the impacts to the community. The Willamette Water Supply Program is committed to continuing to look for these opportunities in the coming months and years.  For more information on this project click here.

Speaking of working together: First open house a joint success!

On September 24, the first Willamette Water Supply Program open house was held in Sherwood in conjunction with Washington County’s 124th Avenue project open house.  Approximately 50 people, mainly Tualatin residents, attended the open house to learn more about the Water Supply Program and 124th Ave projects. Team members were kept busy with citizens asking questions, looking at the route options, providing feedback, and generally getting familiar with the projects.  Most of the citizen’s questions related to how and if the pipeline route options could affect them.  We’re looking forward to similar success at the next open house October 28 in Wilsonville.

Our Reliable Water Website
