Portland is planning a new filtration facility to keep water safe and abundant for generations to come. The new filtration facility will remove the microorganism Cryptosporidium and will be completed by 2027 to comply with state and federal water quality rules. The completion of the project will benefit the surrounding communities’ health, economy, and future.
Designing of the new Facility and Pipelines has commenced and is expected to take about two years. Construction is expected to begin in 2023 and be substantially complete by September 2027.
A joint venture, JW Fowler and MWH make up the Bull Run Conveyance Partners (BRCP) who were awarded the CM/GC contract for the project. Together BRCP will work to eliminate any associated project risk, claims, or delays.
