Early 2022 to Spring 2023
The Water Bureau is investing in Sellwood to replace 4,800 feet—just under a mile—of an aging water main (pipe) along SE Lambert and 19th Ave. The existing main was installed in 1927, and has had multiple breaks. This new pipe will make your water service more reliable and improve water quality.
Spring to fall 2021 and 2022
An important part of our water system needs some work. The two reservoirs at Powell Butte fuel our region with safe and abundant water. Starting in summer 2021, the Water Bureau will repair the roof of Reservoir 1. We'll also install a better drainage system on the reservoir's roof.
Capital Improvement Project
Spring 2022 to winter 2023
The Water Bureau will upgrade the Hypochlorite Building at Washington Park Reservoirs. Aside from exterior doors, upgrades will happen inside the building. Built in 1981, this simple structure fulfills another critical role: allowing us to serve clean and safe water to the west side of Portland.
