Water Bureau Flushing Water Mains in SW Portland Neighborhoods

The Portland Water Bureau is flushing the water mains in SW Portland neighborhoods this summer. Drinking water systems, especially unfiltered systems like Portland, need to routinely clean the network of pipes to improve water quality. The Portland Water Bureau uses Unidirectional Flushing (UDF) to scour and clean the insides of the pipes.

Citywide Tree Project: Portland's new Tree Code

Portland's new Tree Code was adopted by City Council in 2011 in response to community concern. Southwest Portland residents led the charge in convincing the City Council in 2007 to fund the development of a stronger, clearer, set of rules to protect and enhance Portland's tree canopy. Stakeholders and city bureaus participated throughout the project, and the final package had support from an unusually diverse mix, including neighborhoods, Audubon, and the Homebuilders Association. It provides basic, common-sense safeguards for trees in our city and replaces current rules which are confusing, unfair and inadequate to support tree canopy goals.
