Inverness Pump Station

Construction Beginning, April 2018

Bureau of Environmental Services (BES) expects to begin construction in April, 2018 on a project to replace the heating and ventilation system at the Inverness Pump Station located on Inverness Drive near the Columbia Slough in Northeast Portland.

Map of project area

The pump station contains large electric motors and electrical distribution equipment.  This can increase the risk of fire if flammable gasses collect inside the pump station.  The ventilation system in the pump station needs to be modernized to ensure that proper ventilation is maintained and the pump station meets current safety standards.

Construction will be contained within the pump station property, but property owners and businesses on NE Inverness Drive should expect some increased traffic as equipment and materials are moved on to the site.  Construction should take about six months to complete.
