Portland Water Bureau to the Rescue

December 11, 2013

With the cold temperatures we’ve been experiencing, the Portland Water Bureau has been hard at work in the community dealing with main-breaks, frozen pipes, and a number of residential plumbing issues.

Since the freezing weather started last week, PWB has responded to over 500 calls for service - many of which were received after hours.

To ensure all reported water issues were quickly assessed, a team of dedicated professionals staffed the Water Bureau Dispatch center throughout the day and night, and worked diligently to deploy crews immediately out to water emergencies.

If you experience a water emergency, contact the Water Bureau’s 24/7 Emergency Hotline at (503) 823-4874.
