Portland OKs filtration of region’s water

– Cities within Washington County get much of their drinking water from Bull Run. –

The Portland City Council unanimously voted to authorize the Portland Water Bureau to spend up to $500 million to build a filtration plant to remove a potentially deadly parasite from Bull Run water. The decision could raise water rates as much as $18.14 a month by 2030, although cost estimates could come down when all the details are worked out.
