MT. TABOR ADJUSTMENTS PROJECT
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 scheduled to begin in Fall 2015. Reservoir 7, which is enclosed at Mt. Tabor Park, will stay in service.
Scope of Work
Several types of disconnection work are necessary. Some buried pipe will have to be removed, and some new pipe will be installed below ground. Other work will take place inside vaults, both above and below ground, and other structures. None of this work will damage or make non-reversible alterations to the open reservoirs or other historic structures.
Three major tasks are proposed:

For more information or for questions, contact Terry Black, Sr. Community Outreach and Information Representative at 503-823-1168.
During the proposed construction both inside the park and on the nearby street, the Portland Water Bureau and its contractor will work to protect trees and the reservoir and park facilities not impacted by the work.
This page was created for this project website to share more information and offer ongoing updates for both the Land Use Review processes and construction schedules. Project updates and schedules will be posted on a regular basis so that the public will know where to expect temporary construction impacts while visiting the park.
