NWAEP Lunch and Learn: Willamette Water Supply Program , David Evans and Associates Offices, Portland, OR, OR.

Program Permitting Strategy – The No Surprises Approach. Abstract: This presentation will highlight how Tualatin Valley Water District (TVWD) and the City of Hillsboro are partnering to develop the mid-Willamette River at Wilsonville as an additional water supply source. The new Willamette River water system will be one of Oregon’s most important projects—designed to supply water to more than 300,000 residents and some of the state’s largest employers for the next 100 years. It is also one of Oregon’s largest infrastructure projects, including over 30 miles of pipeline, new raw water treatment facilities and associated storage. This additional source improves regional water reliability and redundancy so that if one source is restricted or unavailable, another source can be used. This presentation will provide an overview of the project and describe the benefits of a “no surprises” approach to the permitting strategy: engaging early with regulatory agencies. www.ourreliablewater.or  more
