Soils and Compost:

Practice grass-cycling by leaving short grass clippings on lawns after mowing, so that nutrients and organic matter are returned to the soil.

Integrated Pest Management:

Drip and other smart irrigation delivers water directly to roots, allowing no excess water for weeds.

Water Saving Tips:

Water early in the morning or later in the evening when temperatures are cooler and evaporation is minimized.



Willamette River Water Supply Program

The City of Hillsboro and the Tualatin Valley Water District (TVWD) are partnering to develop the mid-Willamette River at Wilsonville as an additional regional water supply source by 2026. The Willamette Water Supply Program includes building a modified intake on the mid-Willamette River at Wilsonville, a water treatment plant, storage tanks, and more than 30 miles of large-diameter transmission pipeline traveling north from Wilsonville, through Beaverton, and into Hillsboro. Visit www.OurReliableWater.org to learn more about this future water supply.
