Dear Arnold Creek Neighbors,
The Portland Water Bureau has requested we share this letter with you, from their Senior Community Outreach and Information Representative Terry Black.
Your Arnold Creek Board...
The Portland Water Bureau is working on new treatment processes for the Bull Run drinking water source to meet state and federal regulations for water quality. Future projects include:
• CORROSION CONTROL: Reducing the corrosiveness of Bull Run drinking water to minimize lead in home plumbing from entering drinking water:https://www.portlandoregon.gov/water/76465.
• BULL RUN FILTRATION: Installation of a filtration plant to remove potential contaminants such as Cryptosporidium:https://www.portlandoregon.gov/water/76429.
While water from the Bull Run Watershed is considered some of the cleanest in the nation, it still requires treatment to meet federal standards and to provide additional public health protection.
Last August, Portland City Council held a hearing to discuss options for compliance with a federal rule requiring water treatment for the parasite Cryptosporidium. City Council voted unanimously to direct the Water Bureau to begin planning for a water filtration facility.
Since then, the Water Bureau assembled a team that has started work on the planning for the 10-year filtration project.
Read more about Bull Run water treatment, including project schedules and other information, at https://www.portlandoregon.gov/water/76428.
The Water Bureau wants to hear from you to help guide initial decisions that will be made on some of the key aspects of the future filtration plant
TAKE THE 5-MINUTE FILTRATION SURVEY
Take this 5-minute survey to tell the Water Bureau what matters to you most about the quality of your drinking water and the filtration plant.

Hey Arnold Creek Neighbors,
Please come to the neighborhood association meeting tomorrow night, November 14, 2017.
When: 7:00 pm
Where: Stephenson Elementary School | Music Room #168
November 14th ACNA meeting agenda now posted http://swni.org/arnold_creek
Join your neighbors for National Night Out. The Arnold Creek Neighborhood Association is hosting the event at Stephenson Elementary on August 1st from 6-8pm. There's something for every member of the family. There will be face painting, free ice cream, treats for pets and much more.
The school is closed in July so we have organized a field trip. You and your friends are invited to a "Walk On the High Side".
We will gain 218 feet in elevation as we climb to the top of 34th
which is the second highest spot in Arnold Creek.
There's lots to see on the way including the site of a marijuana grow site from the good old days when only outlaws got high.
This will also be a "Walk On the Safe Side" because the 63 houses on 34th are a NET search and rescue unit and at one house we will show what the NET team will check for after the earthquake.
Please meet at Stephenson at 7.00 OR
if it is easier for you, meet at 34th & Stephenson at 7:10
There is no end time for this adventure, you can leave whenever you are ready, but be forewarned if you peel off too early you will not be around when the pub opens up.
We will have maps so you will not get lost!
Hans and Liz will be your trusty tour guides, Sue Strater and neighbors will talk about maintenance issues.
Check out our summer events:
July 11th Neighborhood Walk and Earthquake Preparedness at 7:00 PM starting at Stephenson School.
August 1st National Night Out – 6:00 – 8:00 PM at Stephenson School.
We just posted an updated agenda for next Tuesday's meeting. You may have noticed we're meeting the first Tuesday rather than the second Tuesday of the month. This is due to the school's schedule. Here's a link to the agenda http://swni.org/…/ACNA%206-6-17%20General%20Meeting%20Agend…
Hope you can all join us.
The owners of 3213 SW Caraway Court will describe their plan to subdivide their property into two lots at our ACNA meeting on Tuesday June 6th. Come join the dialogue.
