Background Information

While water from the Bull Run Watershed is considered some of the cleanest in the nation, it still requires treatment to meet federal standards and to provide additional public health protection.

Last August, Portland City Council held a hearing to discuss options for compliance with a federal rule requiring water treatment for the parasite Cryptosporidium. City Council voted unanimously to direct the Water Bureau to begin planning for a water filtration facility.

Since then, the Water Bureau assembled a team that has started work on the planning for the 10-year filtration project.
