Official News Release
As mandated by the federal government, the Portland Water Bureau is required to produce an annual water quality report. The report summarizes the water quality results for 2013, and educates customers about their drinking water.
Once again, instead of mailing the full report to every customer, the Portland Water Bureau is releasing the report online as allowed by new guidelines. Water providers are still required to notify customers of the report’s availability, and a postcard is being mailed this week to inform every customer about the online report. This is a benefit to our customers and the environment.
Customers are still able to request a paper copy, either online or by phone.
Because we have water users whose first language is not English, translations of the report in Russian, Vietnamese, Chinese and Spanish are also available online or 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 extremely important,” said Water Bureau Administrator David Shaff. “Delivering high quality drinking water to our customers is the Water Bureau’s top priority. This report details what goes into delivering water to your tap.”
The report is available online at: www.portlandoregon.gov/water/waterqualityreport
