Powell Butte Reservoir 1 Roof Repair Project Update - May 2021


Construction is coming to Powell Butte this summer.

Wildflowers bloom around a seating area at Powell Butte with the Visitors Center in the background. The Powell Butte Visitor Center is popular with Portlanders. From July to December 2021, we’ll work on the roof of the nearby reservoir.

The two reservoirs at Powell Butte fuel our region with safe and abundant water. Starting in summer 2021, the Water Bureau will repair the roof of Reservoir 1. We'll also install a better drainage system on the reservoir's roof. Our project project e-newsletter has all the details.
