Description

The multi-disciplinary nature of the Ridgewood View Park project allowed for creativity in the sustainable design. The project included the demolition of an existing 5 million gallon (MG) reservoir, the design and construction of a new 8 MG reservoir, an 11 MG per day pump station, as well as 6,700 feet of new water pipelines and extensive improvements to Ridgewood View Park, located in the West Slope neighborhood of Washington County. Park upgrades include new tennis court facilities, a bocce ball court, a nature-themed play area, landscaping and additional walking trails, and site pedestrian connections.

Triple Bottom Line

Economic:

Social: The project was a collaboration between the community and multiple stakeholders from the outset. Improvements to the park include new tennis facilities, a bocce ball court, a nature-themed play area, landscaping and additional walking trails, and site pedestrian connections. The community will also receive more stable and potable water supply for the long term.

Environmental: The project replaced a 5 MG concrete reservoir with a new 8 MG cast-in-place concrete reservoir and an 11 MGD water pump station while improving site grading, storm drainage, and landscaping. The new reservoir will provide a longer lasting water supply to the surrounding areas.

 


Innovative Aspects

The Ridgewood View Park project is the first joint water storage reservoir and park facility to receive an Envision award from ISI as well as the first Envision award project in Oregon.
