The City of Portland provides water for its citizens from the Bull Run Watershed east of the city. In order to provide a safe and steady supply of water that meets state and federal drinking water mandates, the City is building a new Filtration Facility and Pipelines. JWF, teamed with MWH Constructors, was awarded the Bull Run Filtration Pipelines CMGC project. The pipelines will deliver raw water from the Bull Run Watershed to the new filtration facility and deliver treated water from the facility to the residents of the city.
The project design, with review and constructability input from JWF on the open cut and trenchless scopes of work, is scheduled to be completed in 2023. Construction will begin and raw water must be able to flow to the new facility by 2027.
