Join the Portland Utility Board

Interested in joining the Portland Utility Board?


The Portland Utility Board expects to recruit for new Board members during spring of 2021.

Serving on the Portland Utility Board (PUB) is a unique opportunity to give community voice, perspective, and influence the budget and policy decisions of the Portland Water Bureau, Bureau of Environmental Services, and City Council.

You’ll have the opportunity to gain knowledge about the inner workings of the Portland Water Bureau and the Bureau of Environmental Services; the policy and budget issues related to water, sewer, and utilities; and how City government works. You’ll have the chance to use and develop your skills and experience working on a collaborative board and presenting recommendations to bureau leadership and elected officials.

We encourage community members with diverse lived, work, and community experience and a passion for clean drinking water, healthy communities, and healthy watersheds to apply.

No prior experience serving on boards or working with public utilities is required!

Interested? Questions?  Contact utilityboard@portlandoregon.gov or 503-823-1810.

We're always happy to hear from you and talk with you about the opportunity.
