What is Oak Lodge Sanitary District?
Oak Lodge Sanitary District (OLSD) is a Special District of the State of Oregon that provides sanitary sewage collection and treatment of wastewater for a population of about 33,000 people. The area served is roughly 6.5 square miles and 100 miles of pipeline in communities of unincorporated Clackamas County, including Oak Grove, Oatfield Ridge, Jennings Lodge and parts of Gladstone some through separate intergovernmental agreements.
All collected wastewater is processed through the updated treatment plant and cleaned water is returned to the Willamette River. Stormwater flows directly into the Willamette River from storm drains in the system, which OLSD cleans and maintains in partnership with Clackamas County. Water in both systems is maintained up to the quality required by the Clean Water Act, and staff is proud to work together with ratepayers to keep our water clean!
The operations of the District are governed by an elected Board of Directors. In addition to complying with state and federal law and environmental regulations, the District utilizes a variety of committees, to advise it in delivering a level of service that is consistent with community values. Oak Lodge Sanitary District staff welcomes input from the public that we serve, and invites you to ask about joining one of our committees or board.
To express interest, comment, or share your opinion with the Board of Directors, you can attend a Board Meeting (6:00 p.m., the 2nd Tuesday of each month, in the Conference Room of the Administration Building) or you can call, or send written comment or email attention to: Board of Directors, Oak Lodge Sanitary District, 14611 SE River Road, Oak Grove, OR 97267-1198.
