Lead Hazard Reduction Program Partners

The Portland Water Bureau partners with community groups to provide outreach education, testing and remediation for sources of lead.

Every spring the Water Bureau accepts proposals for funding. Application details and deadlines are available by calling the Lead Hazard Reduction Program at 503-823-1547.
