The Lake Oswego Public Works Department is responsible for maintaining infrastructure systems throughout the City to ensure they are working correctly, efficiently, and that the life of our assets is maximized. Streets, Water, Sewer, Stormwater, Motor Pool and City Beautification maintenance programs make up the department with each responsible for their own infrastructure system.
Here at Public Works, we take pride in providing utility maintenance to help make Lake Oswego a great place to live.
News & Announcements
For the City of Lake Oswego, the health and wellbeing of our community is our top priority. This includes our daily, commonly out of sight city services, like drinking water and sewer.
We're here for you, through every emergency. Get to know your drinking water by reviewing the 2020 water quality report.
The City of Lake Oswego is updating outdated, manually-read water meters to a new, wireless-read technology. These smart meters support efficiencies in our water system.
The City of Lake Oswego is seeking a new and more efficient wastewater treatment plant to replace the existing Tryon Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant (TCWTP) located in Lake Oswego, Oregon.
As new technology emerges, the use of wireless devices and data usage has drastically increased. However, as data usage has increased, carriers are needing additional small cell wireless infrastructure to supplement service.
To help reduce localized flooding, the City encourages residents to clear leaves and other debris from storm drains near their property. Clearing leaves, limbs, and debris from the catch basins can help keep storm drains flowing at peak performance during wet weather.
