City News & Announcements
Through two generous awards totaling $138,000 from the State of Oregon (Business Oregon), the City of Lake Oswego continues to have some grant funding available for local businesses impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Applications reopen on September 21 at 9 a.m.!
Effective at 5:01 p.m. Tuesday, 9/15, the City of Lake Oswego wildfires state of emergency has been lifted.
Although activities under the emergency declaration are now permitted - including use of lawn equipment and outdoor smoking - it is important to continue to limit activities that cause a spark as fire risk and poor air quality remain in the community.
Our Lake Oswego-Tigard drinking water remains safe and reliable to drink and our treatment plant remains fully functional. There are a number of small water systems in Clackamas County (Mt Hood Hwy 26 area) that issued boil water notices due to pressure losses and power outages. Click here for a list of these areas.
Water demands in the areas closest to the Clackamas wildfires have increased dramatically. Please do your part: reduce your water use and save water for fighting fires in our region.
For more information visit the Clackamas River Water Providers website.
