Welcome to the Portland Water Bureau’s Surplus Property Website

The Water Bureau recently adopted a new policy to guide how we dispose of real property it no longer requires to perform its mission of providing drinking water to the citizens of Portland and surrounding communities. The policy includes more robust public notice and engagement. The new process for Category 1 and Category 3 real properties can be viewed here

This website is designed to provide the community with information about real property no longer required by the Water Bureau. Properties that the Water Bureau has determined to be no longer necessary for it to accomplish its mission will first offered be for acquisition to City bureaus and then to local, regional, and state government. If there is no interest, the community notification process begins. At the conclusion of the community notification process, it the bureau still wishes to dispose of the property, it will file an ordinance with City Council that declares the property surplus and authorizes the bureau to proceed with disposition. If the City Council designates the property as surplus, the bureau will place the surplus property on the market for sale.

Currently, no properties are being offered for sale.

Properties are listed by geographic area (N, NE, NW, SE, and SW). Click on any site for more information about specific parcels.
