21.24.070 Impairment of Service to Other Properties.

City Code Section
  1. Some properties use water only intermittently, which may cause fluctuations in volume and pressure for other properties or tenants.  The Portland Water Bureau may require a property owner to buy and install equipment that limits volume and pressure fluctuation to protect other properties, tenants and the public water system.
  2. This may also mean that the property owner needs to buy and install a Portland Water Bureau-approved backflow prevention assembly.
