On Wednesday, August 24th, the Portland Water Bureau anticipates returning to 100% Bull Run water supply. On August 2nd, the Portland Water Bureau activated the wells from the Columbia South Shore Wellfield to perform its annual maintenance operation of the groundwater system. Completion of the maintenance operation ensures that the groundwater system will be ready for use if needed for seasonal or emergency supply.
It will take up to two weeks, depending on your location, for 100% Bull Run water to move through the distribution system and reach you. Both sources of water are high quality water supplies which meet or surpass all federal and state drinking water regulations.
Attached to this notification is the expected water quality of Bull Run, groundwater, and the delivered blend.
