Hot Weather Ahead…Make Sure to Stay Hydrated with Cool, Clean, Cheap & Constant Bull Run water

 

Over the weekend and well into next week, Portlanders will experience record-breaking high temperatures. The Portland Water Bureau encourages Portlanders to stay hydrated and keep your body temperature down during the heat.

Tips for staying hydrated: 

  • Keep a bottle of water with you during the day. Consider carrying a reusable water bottle and filling it from the tap rather than purchasing bottled water, which is expensive and creates plastic bottle waste.
  • If plain water does not interest you, try adding a slice of lemon or lime to your drink.
  • If you’re going to be exercising, make sure you drink water before, during and after your workout.
  • Start and end your day with a glass of water.
  • Drink on a schedule if you have trouble remembering to drink water. For example, drink water when you wake up; at breakfast, lunch and dinner; and when you go to bed. Or drink a small glass of water at the top of each hour.
  • Drink water when you go to a restaurant. Not only does it keep you hydrated, but it’s free!
