Bull Run Filtration Project
Engineering And Design
Portland is building a new filtration facility to keep our water safe and abundant for generations to come. The new filtration facility will remove the microorganism Cryptosporidium and must be completed by 2027 to comply with state and federal water quality rules.
For Humberto Piedra-Ruiz, his work as a civil engineer for the Bull Run Treatment Projects is more than a job. It’s an opportunity to ensure access to clean, reliable water for his daughter and our whole community for generations to come.
