Project Type: Water Capital Project Status: Active
Location: Water Treatment Facility, 12 Ames St. Google Maps
Project Information:In December of 2020 the City approved hiring Jacobs Engineering Group to complete the engineering design for a new water treatment plant. The new plant will consist of two treatment trains, each with a 2 Million Gallon Per Day capacity. Funding is anticipated to come from a $9.5 Million Special Public Works Fund loan from Business Oregon, a state agency. On March 7, 2022 City Council approved the zone change and design review application for the new water treatment plant. The Oregon Health Authority, the state regulating authority for Oregon is currently reviewing the engineering design of the plant.
The City could potentially go out to bid for construction in fall of 2022 after OHA reviews the design and if City Council approves the loan from BizOregon. Below is a rendering of the new water treatment plant looking from Reserve Street.
