Residents around the Portland-area are seeing a slight, tea-like color in the water. This yellow tint is a lingering result of the heavy rains in early November. The water is safe to drink. Find more information at portland.gov/water/YellowWater.
Updated Public notice
After several weeks of relying on our supplemental water source, groundwater from the Columbia South Shore Well Field, the Portland Water Bureau returned to 100 percent Bull Run water last week.
Some Portland-area residents may be noticing a harmless discoloration from fine organic matter from the forest floor in the Bull Run Watershed.
