Roadmap for Our Water Future
The Hillsboro Water Department has updated its Water Master Plan.
Long-term planning always has been a key component in the City of Hillsboro Water Department’s ability to meet customers’ needs in a growing and diverse community. All customers benefit from a highly reliable and redundant water system, much of which was planned decades ago.
In continuing with those efforts, the Hillsboro Water Department has updated the Water Master Plan, which help guides the wise use of water supplies over the next 20 years.
The plan examines the City’s water system, recommends Capital Improvement Program (CIP) projects, and details strategies for continuing to provide a safe, reliable, and sustainable water supply and service to customers in a cost-effective manner well into the future.
The plan was unanimously approved by the City of Hillsboro Utilities Commission on June 11, 2019, after a two-month public input period and public hearing.
