Construction ready to start on new water pipeline

Work will soon be underway on a new water pipeline from Fifth Street and Cabana Lane to a new reservoir that will be built near Waluga Park.

About 25 people attended an Oct. 17 meeting to meet contractors and learn about the plan, according to the Lake Oswego-Tigard Water Partnership, which is overseeing the pipeline project and others aiming to upgrade and expand the drinking water system to serve both Lake Oswego and Tigard.

Work on the new pipeline is expected to begin in December in Waluga Park, and the park’s parking lot off Quarry Road will likely be closed from mid-November through the end of February.

Crews will then work east of Boones Ferry Road on Lanewood Street, moving toward Iron Mountain Boulevard in the spring. Construction on Douglas Way and at the Lake Grove Elementary School driveway and parking lot will only occur in the summer, when school is out, according to the partnership.

The Lake Oswego City Council in September awarded a $12.1 million contract to Emery & Sons Construction Inc. of Salem to build the new pipeline.
