The plan outlines local strategies for reducing carbon emissions and preparing for climate impacts.
The Portland Water Bureau participated in developing the plan by identifying actions that will reduce the bureau’s contribution to climate change, such as improving the efficiency of water pumps and other energy-intensive operations. The bureau is also committed to increasing its understanding and management of climate risks to the Bull Run watershed and built infrastructure and assets.
Some of the most important Portland Water Bureau actions are mentioned on pages 113, 114, 115, and 116. Additional Water Bureau actions are listed throughout the plan.
