The City maintains facilities and systems serving the Pendleton area, including roads, bridges, water supply, sewers, electrical grids, and telecommunications. In November of 2014, the Pendleton City Council approved $200,000 for infrastructure near the Eastern Oregon Regional Airport. The plans include a pump station, fire station, and a storage pond to supply water to a 40-acre plot on Airport Road.
In September 2015 the City Council adopted master plans for water, sewer, and storm systems. The master plans assessed the operation and maintenance, and renewal and replacement needs of the City’s existing infrastructure and includes recommendations for funding improvements. The capacity needs for the entire Urban Grown Boundary (UGB) were considered; capital improvements were identified and costs projections were included that covers the next 20 years and includes a full build-out of the UGB.
