When you sign up, be sure to check the box next to "Fulton Park Blvd Main Replacement."
The Portland Water Bureau and Bureau of Environmental Services are teaming up to invest in modernized water, stormwater, and sanitary sewer services on Fulton Park Boulevard. The current systems are close to 100 years old and need upgrades.
We will replace approximately 1,160 feet of a water main (pipe) and install a new water pressure regulator, fire hydrant, and utility access holes. We will also install a new combined sanitary and stormwater pipe and accessible sidewalk ramps on the south side of the Corbett Street and Fulton Park Boulevard intersection.
This project will make your water supply more reliable, increase fire safety, and help protect public health.
South Fulton Park Boulevard, between South Corbett and South Hood avenues.
Fixing aging pipes
The existing two-inch galvanized water main was constructed in 1919 and has a history of leaks and breaks. The new ductile iron pipe will reduce the likelihood of breaks in the future and is expected to last at least another 100 years.
Preparing to fight fires
A new fire hydrant will improve firefighters' access to water and help the bureau continue to meet state fire codes.
Regulating water pressure
A new, larger water pressure regulator and upgraded utility access hole will make your water supply more reliable and will be safer for our crews to maintain and repair in the future.
Protecting public health and the Willamette River Watershed
Replacing aging sewer and stormwater pipes with modern materials makes them more resistant to blockages. The updates will provide a safe, efficient, and reliable sewer system for your neighborhood and the city.
What's happening now
The project is currently in the engineering and design phase. We are communicating with private property owners in the area about access to areas where we need to work. Construction is expected to begin in early 2022.
