River Intake Pump Station (RIPS)- Demolition Now Complete!

from the Lake Oswego Tigard Water Partnership Newsletter
“River Intake Pump Station (RIPS) – demolition now complete!
A significant milestone was reached earlier this week with the last piece of the old intake removed from the river! Divers worked with the crane operator and crews to remove the bottom levels of the intake, and said farewell to the old structure.
This week, crews also removed the stair tower and disassembled the turbidity curtain. Early next week, the large red crane will be removed from the site.
With demolition complete, this marks the beginning of the site restoration. Over the coming weeks, crews will begin preparing for curb placement, asphalt removal, stone column installation and final landscaping.
Thank you to Gladstone, West Linn, Lake Oswego and Tigard mayors for attending a special tour of the new RIPS this week!
In observance of Labor Day, no work will take place Monday, September 7.
