Preparing and Planning: How We're Using Climate Data to Look Toward the Future

Part of our planning and preparedness work includes tracking climate data and exploring how a changing climate can affect our water supply.

Climate expert Kavita Heyn recently spoke with Matt Zaffino, meteorologist at KGW, about what we're doing to better understand what a warmer climate means for Portland's drinking water system. Several of our staff are engaged in climate work.

Climate change is a strategic risk identified in our 5-year Strategic Plan. A key focus over the next few years is to integrate climate change planning and awareness into multiple utility functions and operations.
