About Us

SFWB Serving West Linn & Oregon City

South Fork Water Board is located on the eastern shore of the Willamette River in Clackamas County, in the City of Oregon City. South Fork has a staff of eight full time employees who are responsible for managing, maintaining and operating the water treatment plant, among other duties. The Management and Staff are committed to providing the highest level of service possible to our customers, as a whole and individually.

In addition to providing drinking water for the cities of Oregon City and West Linn, South Fork Water Board also:

  • Wholesale Customers: Sells water to Clackamas River Water for their CRW- South (or the old Clairmont Water District) area.
  • Water Rights: South Fork Water Board has five water rights on the Clackamas River and its tributaries.  These are some of the most senior municipal rights on the river with the exception of a few small intervening rights held by the City of Gladstone.
  • Water Quality/ Source Sampling: Meets and exceeds state and federal water quality and sampling requirements.
  • Water Conservation Program: At the beginning of 2001 began implementing water conservation programs for both Cities.
