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.
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.

- NW Penridge Road north of NW Skyline Boulevard
- NW Greenleaf Road both north and south of NW Skyline Boulevard
Crews excavated, laid water pipe, refilled the excavation, and paved the excavated sections.
We met with the Forest Park Neighborhood Association on September 20, 2022 to share some of the benefits and impacts of this project. Find the PowerPoint presentation here:
