Project Type: Drinking Water
The City of Portland will complete three projects that are required by state and federal law: (1) the Corrosion Control Project will further adjust the chemistry of Portland’s water, reducing potential levels of lead at the tap; (2) the Filtration Project will construct a new filtration water treatment plant to remove the microorganism Cryptosporidium and other potential contaminants; and (3) the Pipeline Project will construct raw and finished water pipelines to connect the filtration water treatment plant to existing conduits. The purpose of the projects is to comply with two federal regulations, the Long Term 2 Enhanced Surface Water Treatment Rule and the Lead and Copper Rule. Together, these projects will improve public health and water quality and increase drinking water system resiliency and reliability for nearly 1 million people.You may need a PDF reader to view some of the files on this page.
