Tualitan Valley Water District's (TVWD) Ridgewood View Park Reservoir and Pump Station recently made history for being the first joint, water storage reservoir and park facility to receive an ISI Envision award as well as being Oregon's first Envision award winner.
The project, done with Tualatin Hills Park and Recreation District (THPRD), called for the demolition of an existing 5 million gallon (MG) reservoir. Following the demolition a new 8 MG reservoir and an 11 MG per day pump station were designed; in addition 6,700 feet of new water pipelines were installed. The project, which will help improve water reliability, will be completed by this summer:
"The Ridgewood View Park project is crucial to the reliability of the water system, and has definitely been a combined effort between the community and multiple agencies from the outset. It is very gratifying to receive independent verification that this project represents a best practice in sustainable design," said TVWD's Ridgewood View Project Manager and Engineer, Nick Augustus.
