Mt. Tabor Reservoir Disconnection
Notice of Public Meetings

The Portland Water Bureau’s draft construction plan for disconnecting the Mt. Tabor reservoirs from our drinking water system is now available: click here. This construction may significantly impact Mt. Tabor Park and could affect its historic structures.  There is a brief window for public re­sponse to the draft plan and there are two important – and very different – public meetings open for all citizens to attend.

At the first meeting, on May 6, the Portland Water Bureau will present a draft construction proposal, and take community questions and comments.  Citizens will be specifically asked if this draft construction plan meets their outcome desires for the disconnect project.  Parks Commissioner Amanda Fritz will be present at this meeting.  

At the second meeting, on June 11, the Water Bureau's final proposal will be presented, perhaps having responded to some of the community concerns. Both Parks Commissioner Amanda Fritz and Water Commissioner Nick Fish will be present at this meeting.  Attending this meeting will give citizens an understanding of the project, so that they are prepared to make comments into the official case-record during the land use review (to happen in July).

These public meetings are co-sponsored by the Portland Water Bureau and the Mt. Tabor Neighborhood Association.  Everyone in the city is invited to participate.
