Did you know that Portland’s backup drinking water source comes from groundwater wells along the south shore of the Columbia River?
Join the Portland Water Bureau and the Columbia Slough Watershed Council for Groundwater 101 – a FREE educational workshop that teaches groundwater basics including local geology and hydrology, the role groundwater plays in our drinking water system, and what we can do to protect this important resource that lies beneath the cities of Portland, Gresham, and Fairview.
This interactive workshop is presented with a mix of hands-on and classroom-style teaching and is appropriate for adults and high school students aged 17 & up. Light refreshments will be provided. Pre-registration is required.
