A planned extension to a water treatment plant has been met with mixed reactions in a Minnesota town, which recently held its third planning commission meeting devoted to discussing the project in two weeks. Over 50 people spoke at the West Linn Planning Commission regarding applications by nearby towns Lake Oswego and Tigard to expand their plant and build a new pipeline that would run underneath several parts of West Linn. The Planning Commissioned delayed a vote on the project in May 2012, with the land use dispute continuing ever since.
