The Water Bureau Hustle

Written by Mike Turner on February 10, 2014

Portland’s Water Bureau is hustling to keep up with water main breaks.

Five were reported yesterday and a sixth wasn’t found until this morning. Crews are working to repair the break at SW Barbur and Bancroft.

Yesterday’s big break at 20th and SE Powell has been repaired.

The aging cast iron pipes are at risk for breaking when temperatures rise and drop. More could break as the big thaw continues in Portland.
