TVWD Activities That Might Affect Your Neighborhood
TVWD and its contractor will be installing a new 12-inch water main on NW Walker Road between NW 185th Avenue and NW Amberglen Parkway. The project will include installation of the water main, installation of new fire hydrants, and reconnection of all water services and side street connections served off of Walker Road.
Aging and deteriorating pipes in the Bonny Slope area have been a problem for the District for quite some time. This project is to replace the existing piping on NW Thompson Road (between NW Laidlaw Road and NW Devoto Lane) and NW 101st Avenue (between NW Thompson Road and the dead end to the south).
TVWD will have upcoming drilling work on our new Aquifer Storage and Recovery (ASR) project. This web page is under construction and more details will be added soon. Please check back for weekly project updates.
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.
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.
Note: Hydrant flushing is finished for the season. We flush during the cooler months when water supplies are more plentiful.
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.
