With the cold temperatures we’ve been experiencing, the Portland Water Bureau has been hard at work in the community dealing with main-breaks, frozen pipes, and a number of residential plumbing issues.
Since the freezing weather started last week, PWB has responded to over 500 calls for service - many of which were received after hours.
To ensure all reported water issues were quickly assessed, a team of dedicated professionals staffed the Water Bureau Dispatch center throughout the day and night, and worked diligently to deploy crews immediately out to water emergencies.
If you experience a water emergency, contact the Water Bureau’s 24/7 Emergency Hotline at (503) 823-4874.
