Portland Water Bureau Encourages You to Remember to Drink Some Water on New Year's Eve

Joining the chorus of parents, partners, and everyone else who looks out for your wellbeing, the Portland Water Bureau is reminding you that even just a little bit of water on New Year’s Eve can make you more comfortable on New Year’s Day.

“For some, New Year’s Eve can be a long day and night of dehydrating activities,” said Tony Andersen, the Water Bureau’s strategic communications director. “As you ring in a new decade, coupling your celebration with glasses of refreshing Bull Run water will be a decision you won’t regret.”

Andersen said it’s so simple to do: turn on the tap, fill water bottles, and be a hydration champion by asking your friends—without an accusatory wagging finger, of course—“Have you watered up?”

“The year 2019 deserves a proper sendoff,” said Andersen. “But remember that New Year’s resolutions will come early, and feeling good on the first day of a new decade is a beautiful thing. Kick off 2020 by raising a glass of Bull Run water and cheers to the New Year!”
