The Portland Water Bureau is a proud sponsor of the City of Portland’s Fix-It Fairs.
A Fix-It Fair is a free event with exhibits and workshops that cover topics including water and energy savings, food and nutrition, recycling, home weatherization, gardening and growing food, yard care and composting, and transportation.
Attendees can also sign up for a free lead in water test kit, enjoy a free lunch, get free professional childcare, and enter to win hourly door prizes. Visit the Portland Water Bureau’s table to see a variety of water storage containers recommended in case of a disaster like a Cascadia Subduction Zone earthquake. You can also learn more about how the Portland Water Bureau is taking steps to prepare for a disaster.
Fix-It Fairs are presented by the Bureau of Planning and Sustainability with support from the Energy Trust of Oregon, Pacific Power, the Portland Water Bureau, and KUNP Univision.
Look for the Portland Water Bureau at the next Fix-It Fair, from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on Nov. 19 at Ron Russell Middle School, 3955 S.E. 112th Ave. in Portland.
