As mandated by the Environmental Protection Agency, the Portland Water Bureau is required to produce an annual water quality report. The report summarizes the water quality results for the 2012 year, and educates customers about their drinking water.
Instead of mailing the full report to every customer, for the first time, the EPA is allowing the report to be published digitally. Water providers are still required to notify customers of the report’s availability, and today a postcard is being mailed to inform every customer about the online report.
Customers are still able to request a paper copy, either online or by phone. Translations of the report in Russian, Vietnamese, Chinese and Spanish are also available by calling Portland Water Bureau Water Line at 503-823-7525.
“I hope everyone takes a moment to read the report online. This information is still extremely important,” said Water Bureau Administrator David Shaff. “Drinking water isn’t something we should take for granted, and it takes a great deal of work to deliver it to each and every tap.”
Again, the report is available online: www.portlandoregon.gov/water/waterqualityreport
