Big Pipe, Big Difference

The Willamette River in Portland is cleaner than it’s been in decades, thanks in large part to your investment. While we continue to restore the river, we can all celebrate the Big Pipe Project. Enjoy our Willamette River. More information at www.portlandoregon.gov/bes/BigPipe.

Weekly testing all summer long

Each week during the summer months, Environmental Services tests for the presence of E. coli as well as water temperature at five popular public recreation spots along the Willamette. Samples are collected on Wednesdays and test results are posted online by Friday morning – in time for weekend activities. Get the latest results at www.portlandoregon.gov/bes/CheckTheRec.

Environmental Services inserts these informational flyers in quarterly water-sewer-stormwater utility bills.
