The Science of Clean, Safe Drinking Water APR 13, 2021 | Virtual Edition | 6:30-8:30PM | $5 suggested donation (

We often don’t think about the water from our tap. Where does it come from and how is it treated to make it healthy and safe? The Portland Water Bureau wants to share the science behind treating and delivering safe drinking water to 700,000 Portland area residents along with regional wholesale customers. Our presentation will look at the science behind clean and safe drinking water—past, current, and what’s coming in the future. Hear from the Portland Water Bureau how we’re protecting against lead, pathogens, toxic algal, and more!
Kimberly Gupta, Bull Run Supply and Treatment Manager for the Portland Water Bureau will present.
