Washington Park Reservoirs Virtual Open House - February 18, 2014

The Portland Water Bureau (PWB) wants 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. Reservoir 4 will be disconnected from drinking water, and updated to use as an overflow and storm water retention tank & de-chlorination facility.

 

Over the last several months, PWB has gathered feedback for the future of the reservoir sites.  The popular recommendation so far is to create a cascading reflecting pool and a lowland habitat with clear water.

 

What do you think? Click through the virtual “Open House” and tell us your ideas.

 

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 February 28. Visit the PWB website to share your comments and help finalize the design!
