Recent changes to the rules regarding how interactive fountains are regulated by the State of Oregon have meant some changes for the fountains maintained by the Portland Water Bureau. The fountains are now defined by the state as "public wading pools" and, as such, require new health and safety signage.
The following six fountains are licensed by the State of Oregon as interactive fountains under the Dept. of Human Services Swimming Pool Rules. They meet design and operation requirements for wading safety.
The following two fountains are not licensed by the State of Oregon; they do not meet the interactive fountain safety requirements for water quality, pool depth, or entrapment/entanglement.
If you have any questions about the new designation of these fountains as public wading pools, please contact Luanne Zoller at (503) 823-3876.
