Project Update April 18, 2018:

The City of Ashland is relocating the outfall of the Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) from Ashland Creek to Bear Creek to comply with new state water quality regulations.  The outfall is the location where treated water from the WWTP is discharged into the creek.

The City completed field work along the Bear Creek Greenway Trail in February 2018 investigating the first proposed pipeline alignment and will soon begin field work along a new preferred pipeline alignment in April/May 2018 that avoids the Greenway Trail.  Please see the picture above that shows the new pipeline alignment. 


Field Work Project Schedule:
• Field Survey (Terra Survey) – Weeks of April 30 and May 7
• Wetland and Cultural Resources Field Work – Week of April 23
• Geotechnical Investigation – Week of May 7


Residents may see some activity between the WWTP and Ashland Pond along the Ashland Pond trail at the end of Glendower Road during this period. These activities are part of the phase I work, which includes outfall construction design, permitting, and field data collection. 

For more information on the project or to get added to an email list for project updates, please send an email to the City of Ashland Public Works Department at healthycreeks@ashland.or.us or you can call 541-488-5587.
