Beaverton Water

Beaverton’s water is safe to drink and use. A national chlorine shortage is heightening attention on the need to water wisely, especially in summer months when temperatures are on the rise.

Do your part to extend our water supplies by reducing water use at your home, especially outdoors on landscapes and other non-essential uses. Visit for a list of water-saving tips.

Beaverton receives most of its water from the Joint Water Commission (JWC) Water Treatment Plant, which relies on chlorine in the treatment process to kill bacteria and ensure water is safe to use and drink. At this time, the JWC has enough chlorine to meet near-term needs. Additional conservation measures may be required if shortages continue.

Notice: Water Guidance for Reopening Buildings. The temporary shutdown or reduced operation of a building and reductions in normal water use can create hazards for returning occupants. Get guidance for reopening buildings after prolonged shutdown or reduced operation to ensure the safety of your occupants and building water system and devices. See Guidance for Reopening Buildings After Prolonged Shutdown or Reduced Use.

Beaverton receives federal WIFIA loan

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has announced an $81 million Water Infrastructure Finance and Innovation Act (WIFIA) loan to the city for water systems projects, saving Beaverton an estimated $31.3 million!

The loan will help finance a series of projects that will enhance the reliability and resiliency of our water system and meet the needs of a growing area. The projects will construct major transmission mains, new water connections, seismically resilient drinking water storage, and more. Project construction and operation are expected to create more than 500 jobs.

Major Projects

Beaverton Purple Pipe: The Beaverton Purple Pipe is a new water system that will route cleaned stormwater for irrigation and stream recharge to irrigate green spaces like parks, school grounds and yards.

Cooper Mountain Reservoir: This new 5.5-million-gallon water reservoir and associated improvements will serve existing development on the eastern slope of Cooper Mountain, new development underway in South Cooper Mountain, and future development in Urban Reserve Area 6B.

Providing safe and reliable drinking water

Beaverton is committed to providing safe, quality and reliable water to our customers. Your water travels about 20 miles by pipeline to the city’s storage reservoirs and then through a vast underground network of pipes to our homes, businesses, schools, parks and other community assets. Our water distribution system never stops, ensuring that you receive quality drinking water when and where you need it.

The city currently provides water to approximately 90% of Beaverton residents. Remaining residents are supplied water by Tualatin Valley Water District (TVWD), Raleigh Water District, or the West Slope Water District.

Transition of Tualatin Valley Water District Customers

Water service transferred for approximately 4,300 Tualatin Valley Water District customers to the City of Beaverton. Read more about the transition.

Water Quality Report

Each year, we collect and analyze thousands of water samples to ensure the city’s drinking water makes the grade. We’re proud that Beaverton’s water meets or exceeds all State of Oregon and federal Safe Drinking Water Act standards.

Check which CCR is yours

The Water Quality Report is also known as the Consumer Confidence Report (CCR), and the two terms, CCR and Drinking Water Quality Report are used interchangeably to identify the same document.
