The City of Hillsboro Utilities Commission has identified the mid-Willamette as the preferred additional water source for the next generation of Hillsboro residents. For two years, Hillsboro Water (HW) studied possible alternatives for a long-term supply that will be ready to serve customers around 2026, and the mid-Willamette option best matched the values identified by Hillsboro customers and commissioners as most important to the HIllsboro community. Before designating the mid-Willamette as the preferred alternative, the Utilities Commission held multiple community conversations about water supply in Hillsboro.
If you know of a group that would like to learn more about Hillsboro's future water supply, please call (503) 615-6702 and we will work with you to set up a presentation. Presentations usually range from 30 minutes to a full hour, but we are happy to fit into your schedule.
