Clean Water Services (District) is seeking proposals from individuals or firms to develop and implement a public awareness/advertising strategy that will increase customer awareness of the District and the services it provides and encourage customers to adopt behaviors that will promote the health of the Tualatin River Watershed. The behavior change must be measurable. This is a one-year contract with options to renew for up to two additional one-year terms. Interested consultants must submit proposals.
Everything the District does aims to protect public health, while enhancing the natural environment of the Tualatin River Watershed. Combining science and nature, District works in partnership with others to safeguard the river’s health and vitality, ensure the economic success of our region, and protection public health for more than 600,000 residents and businesses in urban Washington County.
District was established in 1970 as a regional wastewater treatment authority within urban Washington County, Oregon and small portions of Clackamas and Multnomah Counties, Lake Oswego and Portland. During its first decade, the District consolidated 26 wastewater treatment facilities into four regional plants–dramatically improving water quality and public health for the community. For 49 years, District has pursued a collaborative strategy to advance the health of the Tualatin River Watershed. These investments in clean water and a healthy environment have paid dividends for water quality, public health and the community. Today, the Tualatin River is healthier than it has been in generations and has become a valued recreational asset.
