Greenleaf Pump Station Replacement Project

Construction Begins August 2017 Receive emailed project updates

The Portland Water Bureau will soon begin construction of the Greenleaf Pump Station Project at 360 NW Greenleaf Road. Built in 1951, the Greenleaf Pump Station provides water to the Penridge 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 and new electrical service, new piping and pumps, and new 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.

Construction equipment, materials and crews could be on site as soon as the week of July 31, but will most likely begin August 7, 2017. This project is expected to take approximately 18 months.

Construction will almost entirely occur on Portland Water Bureau property. A small amount of boring may occur in the public right of way on Greenleaf Road.

 What to Expect During Construction:

  • The project may impact your water service. You will be notified at least 24-hours in advance of any water service disruption.
  • There will be heavy equipment and trucks moving in and out of the site. Because of the limited length of the road, any construction traffic should have minimal impact (short wait times) getting in and out of your driveways.
  • Work hours will be 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday–Friday.
  • There will be noise and dust as the old pump station is demolished and the new one built.

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.
