Water program pours money back into local economy
The Willamette Water Supply program recently released its Semi-Annual Business Utilization Report, which shows:
- 97 percent, or $41.3 million of the Programs' "spend" has been injected into the local economy;
- 85 local businesses have provided services to the Program;
- And in total there are hundreds of business opportunities available to support the approximately 36 design, construction, and major professional service procurements anticipated over the next nine years to complete the Program.
The program's leadership has been committed to using local businesses.
These include WEA members Angelo Planning Group, Baker Rock Resources, CFM Strategic Communications, CH2M, Comcast, David Evans & Associates, and DKS.
This is a $1.2 billion project and a partnership between the Tualatin Valley Water District and the City of Hillsboro.
The program will develop the infrastructure for water to be drawn out of the mid-Willamette River in Wilsonville and act as an additional regional water supply source by 2026.
