Keep cool with water
Portlanders can depend on safe drinking water to stay hydrated and keep cool this weekend. We are actively monitoring the regional chlorine shortage. The Portland Water Bureau has enough chlorine to treat water for several weeks, until our provider is caught up and back in full production. Water providers throughout the region have different supply situations. If you live outside the Portland service area, please check with your water provider about your local situation. Get updates.
Play safely at Portland parks
Splash pads and fountains are open, and outdoor pools are open with advance reservation. Some programs are canceled or operating with reduced hours, and synthetic turf fields are closing at 2 p.m. on Saturday, Sunday and Monday. For details, visit Portland Parks & Recreation.
Please put out bins the night before your service day. Crews will start work earlier than normal during the heat wave. Learn more.
Due to extreme heat, scheduled building inspections may be delayed. For updates, visit the Bureau of Development Services.
