Cycle the Well Field – Free Biking Tour (Portland)
May 21, 2016 from 8:45 am - 1:45 pm
In Oregon, a bicycle is legally considered a vehicle, and the same Oregon road laws apply. Please “be seen” and practice safe riding. Vehicle traffic, farm equipment and narrow shoulders exist on many Oregon roads, and you may find that construction projects, traffic or other events may cause road conditions or signage to differ from the map results, ride descriptions and directions. For travel options plus weather and road conditions, visit tripcheck.com, call 511 (in Oregon only), 800.977.6368 or 503.588.2941. Routes listed on this website are for informational purposes and intended as a reference guide only.

Join the Portland Water Bureau and the Columbia Slough Watershed Council for a FREE bicycle tour through Portland Columbia South Shore Well Field! Located deep below the Columbia Slough Watershed, the city well field is capable of producing close to 100 million gallons of high-quality drinking water per day. The well field is used as an emergency backup for the Bull Run source and to augment our water supply during the summer when demand for water is higher. Refreshments will be provided. Space is limited so register early!
