The City of Sandy will be serving drinking water from the Bull Run watershed beginning in early 2014. The Bull Run is one of five sub-watersheds in the Sandy River basin and is located just a few miles outside of the city. Sandy will become the Portland Water Bureau’s 20th wholesale customer, and will blend approximately half a million gallons of Bull Run water per day beginning in 2014, with the option of purchasing up to 10 million gallons per day in future years.
Portland Water Bureau crews modified its Hudson Intertie Facility to connect the City of Portland's Bull Run water supply to the City of Sandy’s water supply system. A new pipeline is currently under construction on Hudson Road between Southeast Lusted Road and Bluff Road, and work will continue south on Bluff Road into Sandy throughout the summer.
In the last few weeks, the City of Sandy contractor began installing the piping and valves that will allow water to flow to Sandy later this fall.
