Over the weekend, Portland Water Bureau crews were busy responding to emergency shut offs, out of water calls (due to frozen pipes) and six main breaks throughout the Portland region. Two main breaks each occurred in Southwest, Northeast and Southeast Portland.
Thank you to our dedicated maintenance crews for working hard to fix these cold-weather water emergencies.
