Portland Water Bureau Launches New Facebook Page

By Lindsay Wochnick 1 Comment

The Portland Water Bureau has launched a new governmental Facebook page in an effort to continue to use social media as way of increasing transparency and engaging with the public. The Facebook page replaces our “former” Facebook account and complies with the City of Portland Human Resources Administrative Rule 4.08 (Social Media) and Facebook’s Statement of Rights and Responsibilities

This new social media site will be a vehicle in which our customers and partners can learn more about us and how we strive each day to provide the highest quality water, customer service and stewardship of the critical infrastructure, fiscal and natural resources entrusted to our care. The Facebook page will feature announcements, press releases, bureau job listings, rebates, incentives, photos, videos and links to the award-winning Water Blog

"Using social media is an essential way for the Portland Water Bureau to efficiently communicate and engage with large audiences.  Social media helps us to distribute information quickly, address questions and concerns and educate customers on utilizing water resources,” notes Public Information Manager Tim Hall. 

The Portland Water Bureau also employs other social media tools such as Twitter, Flickr and YouTube to connect and engage with the public.

Visit to “like” the Portland Water Bureau’s new page.

I hope that all these Social Media sites are not going to be the only way for us to stay in tune with the Water Bureau. There are still a lot of us that don't use and or don't want to use these sites.
