Out and About with the Water Bureau

Good in the Hood and Explorando 2017

On two hot weekends in June, Water Bureau folks were on hand at two popular Portland summer events to hand out water bottles, sign up attendees for lead-in-water test kits, and celebrate our beautiful city with neighbors and friends.

Explorando el Columbia Slough

Explorando is the Columbia Slough Watershed Council’s bilingual nature festival where friends and family learn about the Columbia Slough, enjoy guided canoe rides, dance to music by local artists, and more. Water Bureau staff were on hand to welcome attendees and help keep everyone hydrated with tasty Bull Run water from our Water Event Station, or WES as it is affectionately called.

Good in the Hood

The Good in the Hood Music and Food festival is the largest multi-cultural festival in the Pacific Northwest. This three-day music festival opened with a community parade through Northeast Portland and ended at Lillis-Albina Park.

Water Bureau staff spent the day getting to know attendees, introducing them to free lead-in-water testing resources, and teaching folks how to conserve water and save money on their water bill.

Thanks to everyone who stopped by our table at both events. We can’t wait to see you next year!
