People of all ages are welcome to grab an inner tube for a leisurely float, with live music on the water, a parade and after party. What a great way to cool off on a hot summer day.
Check out www.thebigfloat.com for event details and registration links. Registration is only $6 if you sign up before 7/13.
Yep, the Willamette’s water quality is safe for swimming in the summer and much of the rest of the year!
This is thanks to Portlanders’ investment in the "Big Pipes" and other projects to reduce combined sewer overflows to the river.
Environmental Services continues to protect this investment and further improve conditions in our rivers and streams with green infrastructure to manage stormwater, environmental restoration projects, sewer system improvements and pollution prevention efforts.
See, doesn't this look fun?
