Portland has some of the best water anywhere, and all across our city, people are standing up to defend it. Dozens of community organizations that you know and trust are helping to get the word out: Portlanders MUST reject this risky and dangerous takeover of our water and sewer system.
The initiative would transfer $15 billion in public assets, including control of the Bull Run water supply, to an unproven board with no water or sewer experience, and susceptible to corporate influence.
