Hannah Mason Pump Station Ribbon Cutting

June 8, 2017

This morning, the Portland Water Bureau dedicated the new, energy-efficient Hannah Mason Pump Station. And we celebrated a strong partnership between the Energy Trust of Oregon, the Portland Water Bureau, Portland Parks and Recreation, and the community.

Commissioner Amanda Fritz, Directors Mike Stuhr and Mike Abate, Willamette Park neighbors, architects, builders, and city staff all joined the celebration.

In March, the Energy Trust of Oregon awarded the Water Bureau nearly $500,000 to support the project. Innovative design, new technology, and gravity make the pump station energy-efficient, saving ratepayers over $160,000 each year.

The new pump station is also built to last. It’s designed to withstand the “Big One,” and it will meet future demand in SW Portland.

The Hannah Mason Pump Station is the Water Bureau’s first major infrastructure project named after a woman. It replaces the Fulton Pump Station, the city’s second-oldest and the largest single use of electricity in the entire water system. It also features four state-of-the-art all-user restrooms.
