Public Input Sought for City's Integrated Water Resources Management Plan


The Portland Department of Public Works Water Resources Division is holding its first public information meeting for the City’s Integrated Water Resources Management Plan on Thursday, January 9, beginning at 5:30 p.m., at the DPW Training Room at 250 Canco Road.  The purpose of the meeting is to discuss the development of the Integrated Plan and hear from the community.

At this meeting, DPW staff will discuss the Integrated Water Resources Management Plan (Integrated Plan, or IP).  The IP will help the City prioritize spending with respect to wastewater and stormwater infrastructure and water quality protection.  A more efficient plan will support reliable City services that residents and businesses depend on. Staff will also discuss the related infrastructure needs that will be addressed to benefit Portland’s residents, businesses and the environment. 

"Integrated Planning is the best way I know to be exceptional stewards of the money the City entrusts to us," states Nancy Gallinaro, City of Portland Water Resources Manager.

The Integrated Plan involves topics residents and business owners care about: our working waterfront, recreational access, stormwater, wastewater, flooding and more. As a result, the City is seeking community input. The City wants to ensure that the future priorities of the plan protect public health and the environment. 

The presentation will begin at 5:30 p.m. and last approximately 40 minutes. It will be followed by a time for questions and discussion, at which point residents and business owners are encouraged to ask questions and share feedback. The City has held two workshops for key stakeholder groups thus far, and this public meeting is an opportunity for the broader community to get involved as well.

"My vision is a city that puts clean water in the center of how we live, grow and prosper,” said Nancy Gallinaro.

Anyone who is interested in providing input, hearing about the progress of the plan, and learning how the DPW invests in water and sewer infrastructure should attend this meeting.
