Jack Park: Tree for All and Stormwater Project
Thank you to all 56 volunteers who planted 1,150 trees and shrubs at the Tree for All last weekend in Jack Park! Volunteers got the added bonus of learning about the city’s stormwater efforts in this area. Crews are working to restore Krueger Creek through Jack Park. By placing woody debris in the stream, sediment is allowed to settle out of the water. This helps to restore the streambed. The goal of the project is to improve water quality and habitat for wildlife.  For more information about future volunteer opportunities, visit http://www.jointreeforall.org/.

#Engineers Week 2017
This week is the 2017 Engineers Week, and the theme is “Engineers Dream Big.” According to DiscoverE (formerly the National Engineers Week Foundation), “Every project, great or small, starts with a dream. A dream to create and build. Engineers engage their creativity and technical know-how to transform dreams into reality. They are dreamers across the professional spectrum from transportation, to agriculture, to medicine and beyond.”

Specifically, February 23 is Girl Day, a worldwide campaign to introduce girls to the fascinating world of engineering. We caught up with Tigard’s City Engineer and Assistant City Engineer to ask what inspired them to pursue a career in Engineering.


Lori FahaEngineers are cool 
– we have a critical role in establishing and maintaining quality of life for our communities. I chose engineering because I was good at math and science, I am curious and like to solve problems, and also both of my brothers – who are older than me – are engineers!!  So it’s a family thing. (As is being an Oregon State Beaver!)  I grew up loving the outdoors and being around streams and forests, which probably was key to my choosing an emphasis in Civil/Water Resources engineering. I’m geeky enough to love the process of figuring out HOW to set up a project scope and processes to solve a problem as well as then actually solving it.”  -- Lori Faha, City Engineer

Kim McMillanI loved math and science, and I wanted to do something with it. I met an Engineering student in high school and the career sounded interesting so I decided to pursue it. I love it! You get to design things and see them built. The projects are always interesting.” -- Kim McMillan, Assistant City Engineer

Oregon Department of Transportation to Repair Potholes on Hall BoulevardPW Updates
Both Hall Boulevard and Hwy 99W in Tigard are state highways maintained by the Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT). Questions or issues regarding their maintenance can be directed to the ODOT District 2B Maintenance Office at 971-673-6200 or e-mail Lili.D.BOICOURT@odot.state.or.usODOT crews worked in Tigard to repair potholes on Thursday, February 23 (the short section between Hwy 99W and Hwy 217) and will be doing larger fixes this spring at Hall/Bonita and from Fanno Creek to Burnham. 

Safety and Training
As part of an ongoing safety and training program, monthly staff meetings provide an opportunity for training and education. This month the focus was on truck safety. A representative from Washington County Sherriff’s Motor Carrier Officers (MCO) program provided the training. MCOs enforce laws related to commercial vehicles. The deputy's job is setting up portable weight inspection spots, inspecting the mechanical safety of trucks, making sure hazardous loads are properly packaged, and that other loads are secured properly.

»Streets Crew Completes Pedestrian Facilities on North Dakota Street

SW North Dakota Street at 106th Avenue
Tigard’s streets crew installed a new trail on the north side of North Dakota Street. This trail is the missing link in pedestrian facilities for this area. The project will fill a sidewalk gap and make it possible to travel from the Dakota Station Apartments near the North Dakota Bridge to SW Gallo Avenue on a trail or sidewalk. This project was initiated and completed by Tigard Public Works staff. “We were looking at our major routes for sidewalk gaps and noticed this location (along with another gap farther west where we recently completed a Lighter, Quicker, Cheaper project) as a key missing link in our pedestrian network,” said Senior Project Engineer Mike McCarthy. Working with stormwater crews to pipe a ditch and the streets crew to complete the installation, the project is now complete.

»Water Crew Responds to Main Break
SW Serena Court
Early Monday morning a homeowner who was out for a jog reported seeing water in the street. City crews were onsite within 30 minutes and determined the source was a water main break. The water crew was assisted by the wastewater crew and their hydro-excavation equipment, as the water division’s truck was in for repair. The water pipe was repaired and service restored at 11:30 a.m. With the assistance of the street crew, the city was able to backfill and repave the same day. The goal of the water division in responding to water emergencies is to restore service as quickly as possible.

»Tigard Water Tests Show Improvements in Water Quality, Lower Lead Levels
The City of Tigard provides water to over 60,000 individuals in the Tigard Water Service Area. This area includes the City of King City, City of Durham, two-thirds of the City of Tigard, and the unincorporated area of Bull Mountain.

The City of Tigard has recently completed required federal tests for concentrations of lead in drinking water, showing improved water quality and safe, healthy drinking water for customers served in the Tigard Water Service Area. View the press release at http://www.tigard-or.gov/community/news.php.

»Water Division Responds to Customers in King City
City staff are receiving reports (about four per month) of a chlorinated smell noticeable to water customers in King City. One of the Intergovernmental Water Board Commissioners provided a sample from his home for testing. Chlorine levels are very low, about 1 part per million to ensure public safety. City crews recently completed re-flushing all of the King City distribution piping as part of a pilot project to see if additional flushing would enhance or improve the water quality. At this time, Water Division staff are still working through what the causes may be.

In early 2017, a state-of-the-art ozone disinfection process will be introduced into our water treatment system. Ozone, a powerful oxidant, destroys taste and odor-causing compounds and removes more impurities found in our water supply. It is one of the best technologies for enhancing taste and odor, and it provides an additional treatment barrier to protect public health. For more information about ozone visit lotigardwater.org.

»Meeting On Site with Friends of Bull Mountain Park
Friends of Bull Mountain Park (FBMP), City of Tigard (COT), and Metro Nature in Neighborhoods (NIN) representatives, including Metro Councilor Carlotta Collette, met Monday in Bull Mountain Park to review progress on park development and fundraising. Park plans call for a nature play area, trails, shelter, picnic tables, benches and more. 

The site permit for construction was issued October 5, 2016. Last Friday, FBMP’s construction contractor, GSE Inc., started excavation. “The FBMP have enough funds to start the project and not enough to finish,” reports Toraj Khavari CEO and President of FBMP. The park is currently under construction to complete the west trail ADA and Picnic Shelter. Additional funds are needed to complete the nature play area, basalt outcropping and east side trail. The FBMP is requesting an additional $60,000 in support from Metro’s NIN Program.

Bull Mountain Park is 10-acres and its purchase was made possible through the passage of a $17 million park bond approved by Tigard voters in 2010.

The soccer fields at Cook Park are now closed for the season. Fields are closed each fall due to rain. This break allows the fields to recover a bit before spring sports begin. In total, Tigard has nine sports fields and six shelters available to rent in the spring and summer.

»City Crews Focus on Leaf Pickup
PW UpdatesIn an effort to reduce the impacts of localized flooding, Public Works staff were out this week removing leaves from city streets and storm drains. Leaves, coupled with rainy weather, can spell trouble for city roadways. Leaves that collect or are deposited on the roadway cannot be picked up by street sweeping equipment. During heavy rains these leaves are carried downstream where they accumulate and clog storm drains. Standing water and occasionally flooding result creating a hazard for motorists and pedestrians.

What you can do to help:

  • Collect and contain your leaves—don’t let them accumulate on city streets.
  • Dispose of leaves properly—either compost them, place them in your yard debris container for pick-up by your garbage hauler, or bring them to one of the city’s free leaf disposal events from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in Cook Park: Saturday, November 12, Saturday, November 19, Saturday, December 10, Saturday, December 17
  • Report clogged storm drains by calling 503-718-2591.

Tigard to Winter Weather: We’re Ready
For city crews, winter weather often translates into spending long hours in sanding trucks creeping along treacherous roadways. You might be surprised to learn that a lot of preparation and planning goes into this effort. Every fall, city crews gear up for icy, snowy weather. To prepare for this effort, city staff attend an annual “Sanding Summit” where various agencies meet to review the previous year’s activities, confirm routes, share plans and update information. On Wednesday, Public Works staff participated in a Winter Readiness Rodeo focused on safety and training for the weather ahead. Stations included de-icing, sanding, snow chains, chainsaw safety, the wood chipper and more.

Ringing in 2017 – Happy New Year!
Public Works on-call staff were ready to respond over the New Year’s Eve weekend.  On Friday evening, a report of a sink hole came in. Sections of asphalt were noticeably lower and a section of sewer line identified below.  The on-call staff and Jason Minchey came in to inspect. Mr. Minchey inspected the sewer line with his remote controlled sewer camera.  After inspection, no damage was found inside the 8" PVC sewer line. The first call of 2017 for Public Works was a 6" water main break on 116th Avenue off of Walnut Street. The on-call staff responded and shut water off. Additional crew members were called in to assist. After many tree roots were removed, crews replaced a five-foot section of 6-inch pipe and installed a new water service.

Flood Watch in Tigard
On Wednesday, the National Weather Service issued an Urban and Small Stream Flood Advisory for our area.  City crews worked hard to ease the impacts from localized flooding. “Overall, the impacts in Tigard were minimal,” reports Rob Block, Wastewater Operations Supervisor. “Our field crews took a proactive stance, working to open up the storm drains in advance of temperatures rising. If field staff wouldn’t have been so zealous we may have ended up with a different outcome.”

The sandbag station was busy through the evening on Wednesday. The self-service station is stocked with sand and sandbags and can be accessed at any time in the Public Works parking lot. No roads were closed in Tigard as a result of high water. Flooding is impacting the city’s trail system in several locations. Water is blocking the Fanno Creek Trail in spots.

Celebrate #WorldWetlandsDay by Participating in Stormwater PlanningStormwater!
Natural creek greenways are important in Tigard. Streams and greenspaces are some of Tigard’s most beloved spaces, and yet because of human impacts we see results like habitat destruction, flooding and erosion. Get involved. Tell us about your favorite natural areas in Tigard, and also where we could do more to protect them.

The city is working to complete a stormwater master plan. We need your help to understand where we can make improvements for water quality, and where you see issues with flooding, erosion or maintenance. Visit www.tigard-or.gov/stormwater.

Routine Cleanings
As part of a countywide effort, Tigard works to maintain and enhance the city’s stormwater system. Strict water quality regulations set for the Tualatin River drainage area by the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) require the city to clean (every six years) and inspect using robotic TV camera inspection (every 8 years) the city’s stormwater pipes.

The cleaning process utilizes a jetting nozzle to clean lines and assists in the inspection process. The purpose of cleaning and inspection is for flood control and to make sure the lines are in good shape. Inspections look for illegal discharges that may be harmful to the environment, and also provide the city with a condition assessment of the pipe. This way we know prior to failure and can plan for needed repairs.

The stormwater system is much more complex to clean and inspect because it utilizes portions of the natural environment in addition to pipes to move water. From July to December 2016, Tigard crews spent 515 hours cleaning 90,814 linear feet of the stormwater system at a rate of about 176 linear feet per hour, compared to cleaning the sanitary sewer system at a rate of 277 linear feet per hour.

Ed Leniger, pictured in the photo is a senior utility worker and is currently training our first female operator in at least ten years.

Street Sweeping Schedule
In Tigard, all city roads are swept at least once per month. Find out when sweeping occurs in your neighborhood. The city’s newest map tool displays the street sweeping schedule.

Street sweeping is an important aspect of the city’s Public Works Department. Clearing dirt and debris not only provides a safe and attractive streetscape in Tigard, but also protects water quality and the city’s infrastructure. Regular removal of leaves and debris helps to prevent stormwater drains from clogging, which can result in street flooding. Street cleaning minimizes the burden on the stormwater system from surface debris. It also helps to clear roads after a snow storm. Street sweepers are designed to pick up naturally occurring debris. Please do not pile leaves or other yard debris which can lead to blocked storm drains and slick roads.

Project in the Triangle
The Public Works wastewater/storm repair crew was in the Tigard Triangle this week to repair a sanitary sewer line. The line served a demolished home and was damaged by the connection made from the home to the line. This was a spot repair and was completed within one day.

For more information about the Tigard Triangle, including significant infrastructure problems, visit www.tigard-or.gov/urbanrenewal. Proposed projects include major sewer line repairs. Read more about the community’s vision for the Triangle.

Keep Fire Hydrants and Water Meters Clear
PW Updates
Are the fire hydrants and water meters on your property visible and accessible? Ensuring that fire hydrants and water meters are in good working condition is important. If the fire department needs to use a fire hydrant, every second counts. City ordinance requires a clearance area of 3 feet around fire hydrants. This clearance allows the fire department to easily access hydrants in case of emergency.

Preparing for Winter Weather
Our Public Works Department is ready to respond. All snow plows, sanders, and de-icing equipment are ready to go. Our trucks are operational and we have replenished our supply of magnesium chloride (for de-icing) and sanding rock. Get the latest on our social media channels:   Twitter  |  Facebook

Public Notice: Tree RemovalSequoia map
Tigard’s Public Works Director has determined that the Giant Sequoia tree (Sequoiadendron giganteum) north of the Tigard Public Library will be removed. The tree is located on the south edge of Fanno Creek on the east side of Hall Blvd where the creek runs beneath Hall Blvd. It is northwest of the library. The city initially requested a risk assessment by a private contract arborist due to the erosion of the creek bank beneath the tree. In 2015, the tree was given a risk rating of 8 out of 12. The report states that there is a risk the tree could fall due to continued flooding and erosion. The city plans to reuse the wood as part of a new nature play area at Dirksen Nature Park. Members of the city’s Parks crew and Engineering division will craft the nature play elements out of the salvaged wood. Construction of the nature play area is currently scheduled to begin in Summer 2018. For more information, visit www.tigard-or.gov/sequoia.

Busy Summer Ahead: Parks Reservations Popular in January
In the month of January, Parks & Recreation staff took more than 90 shelter and special event reservations. Popular events will return to Cook Park like the Balloon Festival, Ladybug Run, and Movies in the Park.

Time to Schedule Annual Backflow Test to Protect Water Supply
If you have an in-ground lawn irrigation system, you are required to have a backflow prevention device. To ensure devices are functioning properly, state law requires property owners to test their devices annually. A person who is state certified in backflow testing must perform the test and submit results to the city. For more information, please visit www.tigard-or.gov/backflow or contact Cross Connection Specialist Hung Nguyen at hung@tigard-or.gov or 503-718-2603.

Water Quality: Portland Water Bureau Reports Presence of Cryptosporidium
The City of Tigard is dedicated to providing its consumer with the highest quality of water which meets or exceeds the standards set by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Oregon Health Authority. The city provides water to over 60,000 individuals in the Tigard Water Service Area. This area includes the communities of the City of King City, City of Durham, two-thirds of the City of Tigard, and the unincorporated area of Bull Mountain.

The Portland Water Bureau recently detected the presence of Cryptosporidium, a potential pathogenic microorganism, in several samples collected at their Bull Run intake in January and February. Tigard Water Service Area customers do not receive their drinking water from this supply. A different source and treatment process is used to deliver water through the Lake Oswego-Tigard Water Partnership. Lake Oswego and Tigard Water Service Area’s primary water source is the Clackamas River. The recently upgraded filtration system at our water treatment plant removes Cryptosporidium and pathogens that may be detected in the Clackamas River water supply. Ozone, a powerful oxidant, will also provide an additional treatment barrier to protect public health beginning May of this year.

Tigard Water Service Area customers can visit http://www.lotigardwater.org/?e=936 for more information. Tualatin Valley Water District customers can visit https://www.tvwd.org/. Visit www.tigard-or.gov/water to find your water provider.
