Project overview

Last updated February 12, 2024. 

The Portland Water Bureau replaced the aging water mains (pipes) serving NW Penridge, Skyline Crest, and Greenleaf Roads. Replacing these mains with larger, stronger pipes increases the water flow to homes and hydrants. During this project, we also built connections to the new Greenleaf Pump Station.  

All water main replacement work in this area is complete as of November 2023.    

Why

Fixing aging pipes and preparing to fight fires

The pipes in this location were more than one hundred years old. Replacing them makes the water system more resilient and increases the flow of water to people's homes. Increased flow also helps firefighters put out fires. Newly added hydrants improve firefighters' access to water and help the bureau continue to meet state fire codes.
