$12.1 million contract coming down the pike


Council to consider water pipeline project Sept. 10

The Lake Oswego-Tigard Water Partnership is ready to award a $12.1 million contract to Salem-based Emery & Sons Construction Inc. to construct a new water pipeline from Fifth Street and Cabana Lane to a new reservoir that will be built near Lake Oswego’s Waluga Park.

The contract came in $660,000 below project estimates, according to the city of Lake Oswego.

The 3.4-mile pipeline is one of six segments being constructed as the partnership works to upgrade and expand Lake Oswego’s drinking water system, which will serve both Lake Oswego and Tigard. The pipe will vary in width between 24 and 42 inches in diameter.

Two additional pipeline segments will go out for bids later this year, including a stretch in Gladstone and another that runs from Lake Oswego’s water treatment plant in West Linn to the south shore of Oswego Lake.

Acting as the managing part in the water partnership, the Lake Oswego City Council will consider the contract with Emergy & Sons Construction Sept. 10. The meeting is scheduled to begin at 6 p.m. at city hall, 380 A Ave.
