Draft 2020 Water Management and Conservation Plan out for public review
On April 30, the Water Bureau submitted its draft Water Management and Conservation Plan to the Oregon Water Resources Department.
The Water Bureau's mission is to serve excellent water every minute of every day. The bureau adheres to the value of careful stewardship of natural resources. This means using water as efficiently and sustainably as possible.
To this end, the bureau has prepared an update to its Water Management and Conservation Plan to fulfill the requirements of Oregon Administrative Rule Chapter 690, Division 86 of the Oregon Water Resources Department. Focusing on conservation programs, the draft plan describes how the Water Bureau meets state rules and the drinking water needs of Portlanders. Here are some highlights of the report:
The state requires a public review period for Water Management and Conservation Plans. That review period is underway now. You can review the plan at filepickup.wrd.state.or.us/files/Publications/WMCP/Plans%20on%20Public%20Notice/.
If you have questions about the plan, please contact Rebecca Geisen at the Portland Water Bureau: 503-823-7493, firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you want to submit comments about the plan, please send them to them to Kerri Cope at the Oregon Water Resources Department: 503-986-0919, email@example.com. The comment period is open until June 18.
Report on program progress from 2010 through 2015.
