Portland Water Bureau Environmental Permitting Assistance

Portland Water Bureau Environmental Permitting Assistance

Working as an extension of Portland Water Bureau staff, Akana planners and engineers provided environmental permitting assistance for reservoir removal and pump station upgrades at the Lower and Upper Linnton reservoirs in the Forest Park area of Northwest Portland.

Both projects required Type II Environmental Reviews due to their location within Open Space Conservation and Protection Zones and within the Forest Park Natural Resources Management Plan which categorized the proposed activities as “Use Needing Further Evaluation”.  The sites are also located within the Northwest Hills Plan District which applied additional approval criteria to the applications.   In addition to Existing Condition, Proposed Development, and Construction Management Plans, each application included a Mitigation Plan to minimize impacts on resources and restore adjacent disturbed areas.  Both permits were secured without a problem.
