The Portland Water Bureau’s Greenleaf Pump Station Project at 360 NW Greenleaf Road began in August 2017 and is on track for completion in summer 2018. The building foundation and floor slab are complete, the walls are almost complete. Yard piping is being installed. Cold weather has made it necessary to install a tent over the building site and use external heaters to keep the concrete and masonry warm enough to cure properly. (At the end of this message you will find photos and a website link to drone footage of the site under construction.)
Built in 1951, the Greenleaf Pump Station provides water to the Pennridge Tank, which feeds the local water distribution system. This configuration can no longer meet the fire suppression needs of the area it serves.
The project will replace the existing pump station onsite with a new building, electrical services, piping, pumps, and control systems. The project includes demolishing the existing pump station and relocating an existing emergency generator to the new building. Improved facilities will be better able to meet current and future drinking water and fire suppression needs of the area. The completion of this project will ensure public health and safety.
Please do not hesitate to call me with any questions or concerns, and to inform me of any special accommodations you may need during the work. Thank you for your patience while we work to improve your water system.
