Water Circle

by: CONTRIBUTED PHOTO: SETH ATKINSON   - This view of the new water reservoir in Sandy will soon be closed and a roof contructed to enclose the large water tank.Construction on the new water reservoir continues at its site on land owned by Frontier Communications, just south of the phone company’s switch building between Hood and Scenic streets and east of Revenue Avenue. The roof should be completed by mid-September, said City Manager Seth Atkinson, and the contractor could start burying the 1-million-gallon concrete tank by about Oct. 1. The tank will store Portland Water Bureau water from the Bull Run Reservoir. The project includes landscaping the area around the property and mound, partially burying the tank. Personnel from Business Oregon recently came to Sandy to tour the project.
