Powell Butte Reservoir 1 Roof - October 2021

Three workers in construction vests and hard hats work together to install a new water pipe. Text reads: Construction Update.

The two reservoirs at Powell Butte fuel our region with safe and abundant water. The Water Bureau is repairing the roof of Reservoir 1 and installing a better drainage system on the reservoir's roof. 

Read our October e-newsletter to find out what is to expect as construction continues. Crews are installing pipes that will carry rain from the reservoir to the existing storm water system and preparing for a rainy winter.
