Bridgeport Village, a formerly underused 28-acre site, is now Tigard, Oregon’s premier entertainment and shopping district.
NV5 has supported Washington County’s Department of Land Use and Transportation with methane monitoring and regulatory reporting for Bridgeport Village for several years, assisting with routine methane monitoring; extraction system monitoring, maintenance, and optimization; 24-hour methane alarm responses; methane sensor testing and replacement; and methane panel battery testing.
NV5 and Washington County have collected an abundance of monitoring data that demonstrates the engineering controls at the site are effectively preventing methane from migrating into structures and that Bridgeport Village is an environmentally safe area. This data was used to successfully negotiate a reduction of monitoring/testing requirements with the state’s Department of Environmental Quality, thereby saving the County a significant amount of money. We also provided training to County personnel so that they can conduct routine monitoring in-house.
