Join the Portland Water Bureau and the Columbia Slough Watershed Council for the annual "Subs on the Slough" event on Friday, August 16th, from 11:30 am to 1:00 pm at the canoe launch near the Portland Water Bureau’s groundwater pump station, 16650 NE Airport Way.

Participants in this free lunchtime tour will learn all about Portland’s Columbia South Shore Well Field, the supplemental drinking water supply.

Visitors will also learn about the Columbia Slough watershed, view the solar array that helps off-set the Portland Water Bureau’s electrical needs and talk about how everyone can help protect our groundwater resources

Lunch is provided at picnic tables along the scenic Columbia Slough trail. Advanced registration is required and this event is suitable for children ages 10 and older.

Register today!

For more information, contact Penny Beckwith at 503-281-1132, or Doug Wise at 503-823-7473.
