About the Project
In 2020, the Grants Pass City Council adopted a resolution declaring a public need to acquire property for a new water treatment plant.
On Jan. 15, 2020, the Grants Pass City Council adopted a resolution declaring a public need to acquire property for a new water treatment plant. With this action, the council took another step to secure Grants Pass’s nearly 90-year water legacy.
With property secured, staff and consultants are securing the final details to begin the multi-year project and construct a replacement water treatment plant. This plant will provide a plentiful supply of clean, safe drinking water for the next generation of Grants Pass residents.
Plant design activities will begin in late spring of 2021 and are anticipated to last for about a year. Construction will begin early in 2023. In the meantime, there will be a flurry of activity on the site as work is carried out to complete subsurface investigations, mitigate any potential hazards, install storm water facilities, and secure the site.
This website will be updated frequently with current project schedules, photos, and videos of this historic public works project.
