Groundwater Development Program Package No. 1

Rockwood Water PUD & City of Gresham, OR

Consor provided design, permitting, bidding, and construction management services for Package No. 1 of the Groundwater Development Program which includes a new well (Cascade #7), a new 6.0 MG prestressed concrete reservoir that will be the tallest of its kind in the region (Cascade #2), rehabilitation of an existing 4.0 MG welded steel reservoir (Cascade #1), and multiple new waterlines.

The project package is one of nine to be completed by 2025, when the finished 26MG Cascade Groundwater System is slated to go online. Jointly owned and operated by Rockwood Water People’s Utility District and the City of Gresham—aka the Cascade Groundwater Alliance—the new system will fully provide both agencies’ customers with safe, resilient, and affordable water.
