Portland's City Council is considering asking the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to extend the deadline for replacing the city's open reservoirs.
The request is one more twist in a long and confusing story that originally had the council agreeing to replace the reservoirs with new underground tanks in the foreseeable future, and then asking for the delay after the EPA suggested it will offer New York City one in a similar situation.
“Portland and other systems should receive the same opportunity as New York City to benefit from the EPA's review of the LT2 rule and any alternative compliance options that become available,” according to a resolution that will be considered by the council.
The change comes around the same time as the city has asked to be excused from other EPA requirement to treat Bull Run water for cryptosporidium, a potentially deadly parasite. The city asked for a waiver after extensive tests failed to find any sign of the parasite. But shortly after making the request, a small number of signs were found in some water samples. The request is still pending.
