Project overview

The Portland Water Bureau continues design and planning work to replace the water mains (pipes) serving NW Penridge, Skyline Crest, and Greenleaf Roads. These mains need to be replaced with larger pipes to increase the flow of water to people's homes and for putting out fires. During this project, we'll also build connections to the new Greenleaf Pump Station.

Where

  • NW Penridge Road north of NW Skyline Boulevard
  • NW Greenleaf Road both north and south of NW Skyline Boulevard
  • NW Skyline Crest Road north of NW Skyline Boulevard

Why

The pipes in this location are more than one hundred years old. Replacing them will increase the flow of water to people's homes and for putting out fires.

What's happening now

Portland Water Bureau contractors are talking with neighbors and inspecting the road.

Construction will begin in 2023. Work will occur in phases, with periods of inactivity between phases. Crews will excavate, lay water pipe, refill the excavation, and apply temporary paving. A later crew will do the final paving. The current plan is to limit open excavations to small sections to make access easier.
