Water Bureau Kicks Off FY 2016-17 Budget

The development of the Portland Water Bureau’s Fiscal Year (FY) 2016-17 budget is well underway.

For the upcoming fiscal year, the Water Bureau will propose a budget that:

  • Balances the infrastructure and service needs of the city’s aging and complex water system,
  • Complies with state and federal regulations relating to clean water, and is
  • Understanding of the economic issues facing both residential and business customers throughout the Portland metropolitan area.


For the next fiscal year’s budget process, the Portland Utility Board (PUB) will serve as the Budget Advisory Committee (BAC) for the Portland Water Bureau and the Bureau of Environmental Services.

The PUB is a nine-member citizen oversight body that meets all year to oversee the bureau’s development of financial plans, capital improvement plans, the annual budget, and rate-setting for the City's sewer, stormwater, and water services. The PUB will advise the City Council.

Previous PUB meetings were held in September and mid-October. Upcoming meetings are listed below. Future meetings will be posted on the PUB's online Meeting Calendar. Meetings are open to the public.
