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.

The Tryon Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant is aging and needs major upgrades to continue to reliably meet Oregon Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) water quality requirements. Lake Oswego and Portland are exploring building a new wastewater treatment facility to replace the old plant.
The project is in the early stages of design. For more information about the project, or to sign-up for e-news, click here.
The City of Lake Oswego is updating outdated, manually-read water meters to a new, wireless-read technology.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 main source of lead in drinking water is typically from household plumbing or components associated with service lines. We offer free lead testing to our water customers. If you are concerned about the levels of lead in your home, you can pick up a test kit and instructions at the 2nd floor reception desk at City Hall. For questions about lead testing or your drinking water, call the Water Treatment Plant at 503-635-0394.
