TVWD Activities That Might Affect Your Neighborhood
TVWD is installing approximately 650 feet of water pipe along SW Oak St from the west side of Ash Creek (SW 87th Ave) to the east side of SW Hall Blvd, passing underneath Ash Creek and the existing ODOT right of way, using underground horizontal directional drilling (HDD).
The TVWD is replacing two aging water reservoirs located at the corner of SW Garden Home Road and SW 62nd Place with a single reservoir designed for today's more rigorous standards.
TVWD is beginning a project to improve the reliability of the water supply for public use and fire protection serving the West Hills area. The aging Hyde Park reservoir was decommissioned in 2011 due to structural concerns. The Inglewood reservoir and pump station are also aging. The condition of this infrastructure prompted the need for improvements in this area.
Note: This page takes you to an external Web site because in conjunction with TVWD, this project has a variety of partners.
TVWD is constructing a new pump station on the Thompson Reservoir site on Thompson Road. When complete, the pump station will improve the reliability of the water supply to portions of the West Hills within the District's service area. It will also provide a second way to pump water to the District's fourth largest pressure zone, which includes St. Vincent Hospital.
The Tualatin Valley Water District (TVWD) is beginning a water main replacement project that will improve the reliability of the waterlines in the Oak Hills area.
In our ongoing effort to deliver quality water, every so often, TVWD staff open fire hydrants around the District and allow the water to flow through the pipes. Systematically opening the hydrants enhances water quality by flushing sediment from the mainline pipes, verifies the proper operation of hydrants and valves, and maintains firefighting capability.
Capital improvement projects are planned and constructed throughout the year to meet current and future water needs. At any given time, TVWD has a variety of these projects in motion, including pipe replacement, reservoir construction, and building improvements.
