The Portland Water Bureau has posted its annual water quality report online. The federally-required report outlines how, from forest to faucet, Portland is continuing to deliver clean and safe drinking water for the city of Portland.
In the report, customers can learn why Portland has some of highest quality drinking water in the country, and general information about Portland’s drinking water system. The report, which summarizes water quality results for 2014, outlines that Portland’s drinking water met all public health standards.
“I hope everyone takes a moment to read the report online. This information is extremely important,” said Water Bureau Administrator David Shaff. “Delivering high quality drinking water to our customers is the Water Bureau’s top priority. This report details what goes into delivering water to your tap.”
The Portland Water Bureau is mailing a postcard this week to inform every customer about the availability of the report online. Customers are able to request a paper copy, either online or by phone. The report is available in large font for the visually impaired. Russian, Vietnamese, Chinese and Spanish and can be found online or by calling the Portland Water Bureau Water Line at 503-823-7525.
