October 3rd Meeting Resources
- Six potential sites for the filtration plant were evaluated in 2017-18. Carpenter Lane was selected for the new filtration plant site because it was the only property that met all facility siting criteria, including maximizing gravity flow, being close to existing and future pipelines, site size, site slopes, and geologic conditions, being already owned by the City of Portland, and ability to meet the compliance schedule. The Portland Water Bureau purchased the Carpenter Lane site in the 1970s to use for future water system facilities. The analysis can be found in the Bull Run Filtration Project Preferred Alternatives Report.
- At the Oct. 3 meeting, the Bull Run Filtration project Site Advisory Group requested examples of community advisory groups and Good Neighbor Agreements. A few examples are below, noting the process and outcomes will be much more robust with the larger project scope for the filtration facility.
- The Washington Park Community Sounding Board provided input in 2014 to the Portland Water Bureau (PWB) in conjunction with decommissioning of the reservoirs and construction of a new underground reservoir. Their advice on the design and construction mitigation measures was documented in the meeting minutes and reflected in the work being completed now.
- In 2010, the Powell Butte Reservoir 2 Project Project Advisory Committee (PAC) provided recommendations to the Water Bureau for the Trail Plan Concept, Park Center Concept, and architectural concepts that lead to conceptual plans for the park trails system and the park amenities, including a narrative description of the proposed park improvement, a schematic plan for the areas and locations of the improvement.
