The Joint Water Commission (JWC) is the primary drinking water supplier in Washington County, Oregon, and is responsible for treating, transmitting, and storing potable water for more than 250,000 customers.
Four agencies share ownership in the JWC – Cities of Hillsboro, Forest Grove, Beaverton and the Tualatin Valley Water District (TVWD). The JWC also wholesales water to the City of North Plains.

Every summer, the Joint Water Commission (JWC) partners with Safe Kids Washington County to provide child and toddler-sized personal flotation devices (PFDs) for a free water safety kiosk at Hagg Lake. The PFDs, or life jackets, can be borrowed by parents for their children to play in the lake. When the child is finished with water activities, the PFD is returned to the kiosk for another child to use another day. The JWC participates in the program as part of its dedication to stewardship at Hagg Lake and in the Tualatin Watershed.
