Groundbreaking for the Washington Park Reservoir Improvements Project

After years of planning and development, the Portland Water Bureau broke ground today on a new seismically-resilient reservoir at Washington Park.

The Water Bureau supplies drinking water to almost 1 million people in the Portland region. The Washington Park Reservoirs serve over 360,000 people west of the Willamette – including several large hospitals, schools, parks, and the Oregon Zoo.

The existing reservoirs are over 100 years old, and sit on an active landslide as well as a fault-line. To ensure a more resilient and safer system, Water Bureau engineers have designed a fortress-like underground reservoir, ready to withstand the ‘Big One.’

The existing reservoir 4 will be disconnected and a wildlife habitat area, bioswale, and reflecting pool will be constructed in the basin above the reservoir.

The groundbreaking ceremony gave the public a chance to learn more about the new reservoirs, and the City a chance to thank our community partners.

The Water Bureau’s highest priority is to deliver safe, clean, and reliable water to all of its customers, and we are excited to move forward with the project that will strengthen our water system for future generations!

Check out the Water Bureau’s website to keep updated on the project.

Welcome Everett Wild!

Join us in welcoming Everett Wild to the Fish Team! Everett joined our team this week as Policy & Communications Advisor.

A proud Portland native, Everett loves experiencing all Portland and Oregon have to offer – from visiting classics like Washington Park and the Rose Garden to discovering a new trail in the Gorge or a lonely dirt road in Eastern Oregon. When not outside in Oregon, Everett is probably searching for (or creating) maps to add to his diverse map collection.

A former intern for Congressman Kurt Schrader and Senator Merkley, Everett recently graduated from Whitman College with a major in Environmental Politics. Everett enjoys all things arts and spent many years in the theatre as an actor and lighting designer. He is excited to engage his passion for the arts and his educational background with Commissioner Fish’s portfolio.
