Washington Park Reservoirs Virtual Open House

 October 21, 2013

The Portland Water Bureau is looking for your feedback on the final design plans for the visible features for Washington Park Reservoirs 3 and 4. 

Due to a federal mandate, Reservoir 3 will be replaced with a 15-million gallon underground reservoir, and Reservoir 4 will be updated to use as an overflow and storm water retention tank, including a de-chlorination facility.

The Water Bureau wants the public to weigh in on the more visible features of the reservoir sites. Click through the virtual “Open House” and tell us what you think. What should be done to the land on top of the new buried reservoir? Should we create reflecting pools? Should some of the land include sloping green spaces? 

Your comments will be shared with the project team and representatives on the Community Sounding Board. The Board is comprised of park users, neighborhood association representatives, and Portland Parks & Recreation staff; they will advise the PWB as the design is finalized.

The virtual open house will be available until October 24. Visit the PWB website to share your comments to help finalize the design.
