Unprocessed field note material exists for this structure (N6).
Significance: Portland's reservoirs are significant, not only as functioning components of the municipal water system, but also as symbols of the importance of that system to the development of the city from a small town to a large metropolis. The reinforced concrete construction of the reservoirs is notable. Of particular importance, in this respect, are the four 1894 reservoirs, constructed using systems patented by Ernest L. Ransome, nationally recognized pioneer in the field of reinforced concrete. With their picturesque structures and decorative wrought-iron fences and lamp posts, the reservoirs are vital landscape elements for the two major city parks in which they are located.
