Taylors Ferry Reservoir Project

TVWD plans to replace its reservoirs at the Taylors Ferry site. Final site design and construction will begin following land use permitting for the project, with a goal for starting construction in 2021.Taylors Ferry Proj-2

What is TVWD doing?

TVWD is planning to replace the existing two reservoirs at the site with two new, prestressed concrete reservoirs and an enclosed pump station and generator. We are also planning for demolition of the unused former Metzger Water District building for conversion to covered equipment storage.

When: April 4 at 6PM

Where: Garden Home Recreation Center: 7475 SW Oleson Road, Portland OR 97223

What Is the Timeline?Taylors Ferry Layout - 4-2019

TVWD is currently working with Washington County for the project's land use permitting. Once permitting is secured, final site design will start in 2020 with construction beginning in 2021.

Why now?

The current 1 million-gallon concrete reservoir is at the end of its useful life and ready for replacement. To better accommodate the current and projected water needs of the area it serves, we are proposing to replace it and increase its size to 1.75 million-gallons.

The steel reservoir onsite is also ready for replacement. To best plan for future water demans, we propose replacing it with a matching, 1.75 million-gallon concrete reservoir, both built in conjuntion for efficiency.

Construction Plans

As site designs and construction plans are created, modified or updated, the current versions will be available here for neighbors to remain aware and engaged throughout the process from permitting, design and through construction.

Please note: all documents are preliminary and will be updated as changes are made.
