As we’ve seen this summer and fall, groundwater from the Columbia South Shore Well Field helps keep Portland’s gardens growing and businesses bustling during unusually dry conditions. The Columbia South Shore Well Field can also stand in for the unfiltered Bull Run supply if winter storms wash too much sediment into the Bull Run River.
The workshop includes hands-on and classroom-style teaching and is appropriate for adults and high school students. Light refreshments will be provided.
