Benson Bubblers Back in Service

By Teresa Black

Portlanders were challenged by the last few weeks of very cold weather, and one of the challenges was getting a nice fresh drink of Bull Run water from the city’s iconic Benson Bubblers.Benson Bubbler

The Bubblers must be turned off in freezing weather, so that water does not blow onto sidewalks and streets and freeze. Icy, slippery surfaces cause unsafe conditions for pedestrians and vehicles, both two and four wheeled.

With the weather warming up, the Bubblers have now been turned back on. Portlanders can once again get a refreshing drink when they want.
