Century-Old Pump Station

The original Fulton Pump Station was built in 1912 as a one room pump house. It is located on SW Nevada Street, between SW Macadam Avenue and SW Virginia Avenue.

Exterior Concept of New Pump Station Blends into the Natural Landscape

A Project Advisory Committee, comprised of local neighborhood associations, businesses and park users, worked with architects and City staff to discuss the exterior of the facility and choose design elements.

Fulton Pump Station Helps Supply Drinking Water to a Large Portion of SW Portland

The 101-year old pump station is at maximum capacity of 12-million gallons per day (MGD). Future needs require a pump station with a maximum capacity of 18 MGD.

Planning for the Future

The replacement Fulton Pump Station will ensure the Portland Water Bureau’s ability to satisfy future service requirements and fire flows.
