Utilities

State-of-the-art utility operations are available at Port of Morrow and they cost less than at many other industrial sites:

Water

Clean, clear water from a series of deep wells is available in the Boardman Industrial Park. A system of five Port-owned wells, augmented by a link with the City of Boardman’s municipal system, provides ample unused capacity for food processing, as well as other industrial uses requiring large water supplies.

Wastewater

The Port maintains over 5,000 acres of farm land near the Boardman Industrial Park for the disposal of food processing wastewater. The effluent water is also a great fertilizer for the surrounding farm land. This efficient, effective and economical method of disposal will be expanded by 100% in the near future.

Utilities

Electricity

Local electric cooperatives provide some of the most economical power in the country. Umatilla Electric Cooperative Association serves both the Boardman and Airport Industrial Parks, while the Columbia Basin Electric Cooperative serves the South Morrow Industrial Park.

Natural Gas & Process Steam

Plans for a natural gas-fired co-generation plant in the Food Processing Park will allow for delivery of process steam at an economical rate.

Fiber optic

No matter what your communication needs, the Port is equipped for both voice and data transmission. All three parks have state-of-the-art fiber optics, supplying businesses with highly reliable service.
