Planning for Portland’s Water Infrastructure

Tighe & Bond was part of the consultant team selected to develop the City’s Integrated Water Resource Plan (IWRP). Tighe & Bond served as Program Manager throughout the multi-year planning effort, playing a vital role in day-to-day communications with the City as well as guiding the entire project team. Tighe & Bond provided the local knowledge of the City and led the modeling and Combined Sewer Overflow (CSO) Abatement Assessments while also being an active participant in all stakeholder workshops and preparing the final Integrated Plan report.

With the Integrated Plan complete, the City is preparing to embark on the next steps of the program that include formalizing the Plan with regulators, implementing the first year of the Plan, and ongoing communication with the public and Stakeholders.
