We have finished strengthening the trestle that holds the water pipe running along Kelly Creek. Completion of this project means that Portland's and Gresham's water supply is now more resistant to earthquakes and floods. 

Construction may be complete, but we're sticking around over the next couple of years to complete our restoration of the green space surrounding the construction site.
