In order to satisfy an unfunded federal water quality mandate, the City of Portland is required to disconnect Portland’s open air reservoirs, including three at Mt. Tabor Park. This work is proposed to begin in early 2015.
On Tuesday, May 6 from 6:30 to 8:30 pm at Warner Pacific College, 2219 SE 68th Avenue in the McGuire Auditorium, the Portland Water Bureau will host the first of two public meetings. You are invited to attend and learn more about the scope of the proposed project inside the park and on SE Lincoln Street, and ask questions and offer feedback.
The second public meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, June 11, also at Warner Pacific College at 6:30 to 8:30 pm in McGuire Auditorium.
These public meetings will focus only on the proposed work to decommission the open reservoirs. There will be a separate public involvement process on the future of the reservoir sites at a later date.
The public is also welcome to learn even more about the proposed project by taking part in a guided walking tour with Water Bureau staff, or a self-guided tour. The tours are free; space is limited to a maximum 20 people on each tour date and reservations are required. Learn more and make reservations at https://www.portlandoregon.gov/water/64705.
