Heads up Portland - Boil Water Notice 5/23/2014
If you live here or just visiting for our lovely food and ::cough:: water, you may want to read this:
"The Portland Water Bureau issued a city-wide boil notice on Friday morning after water staffers detected E. coli in three separate tests during the past three days."
ETA: Some restaurants are closing due to the notice.:
Lifted on Saturday, apparently.
And there's this: A U.S. Environmental Protection Agency rule that goes into effect next April will require that all reservoirs holding drinkable water are either covered or pass water to a re-treatment plant before being sent to taps.
That's going to cost...
