Free Workshop Offered on Portland’s Groundwater Supply

By Lindsay Wochnick

Groundwater 101 Workshop

Join the Portland Water Bureau and the Columbia Slough Watershed Council on Saturday, January 25, 2014 from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM at the NECA-IBEW Training Center (16021 NE Airport Way) for “Groundwater 101,” a FREE workshop that teaches groundwater basics.

Taught with a mix of hands-on and classroom-style teaching, the workshop invites participants to learn about local geology and hydrology, the vital role groundwater plays in our drinking water system, and what we can all do to protect this important resource.

The workshop is appropriate for adults and high school students aged 14 and up and light refreshments will be provided. After the workshop, interested participants are invited to take a 30-minute guided tour of the Portland Water Bureau Groundwater Facility.

Pre-registration online is required and class size is limited to 35 participants – don’t wait to sign up!

Visit the Columbia Slough Watershed Council’s website for watershed information, activities and events and opportunities to get involved.
