Willamette Water Monthly

My river, your river, our river, Oregon’s river – the Willamette (PART 4 of 4)

The final installment of our four-part series detailing drinking water protection from source to tap.

The water, once treated, is moved through pipes and stored in closed reservoirs to protect its quality all the way to your tap, as part of our commitment to provide safe and reliable water.

When completed, the Willamette Water Supply’s entire delivery system will be regularly tested to maintain a reliable and high quality water supply. Sampling will be conducted at multiple locations, including the water treatment plant. System technicians will test for all contaminants regulated by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, plus many unregulated contaminants along with other water quality indicators like pH and temperature.
