    NWAEP is co-hosting a lunch and learn event with Sustainable Path in Seattle on June 29 at Noon on Orca Awareness Month, presented by Chris Wilke, Executive Director of Puget Soundkeeper.

    With its 2000 miles of shoreline, 28 river systems, 10,000 streams, 8 species of salmon & trout, 10 species of marine mammals and an important shellfish industry, Puget Sound is a national treasure that is under threat. Toxic pollution from stormwater, wastewater, industrial agriculture and fossil fuels imperils the future of the Sound and threatens the health of our communities.

    Join us to learn more about which specific issues pose the biggest threats and what can be done by citizens, policy makers and industries to protect Puget Sound and all of its freshwater tributaries. We'll also have a discussion of some of the recent efforts by the new federal administration to undermine existing protections and what is being done to resist dangerous policy proposals and funding cuts.

    Speaker: Chris Wilke, Executive Director of Puget Soundkeeper Alliance

    Bio: Chris works every day to keep our waterways safe from pollution. Whether it’s holding polluters accountable to the Clean Water Act, working to strengthen regulatory protections for clean water in Puget Sound, or forging solutions and working to assist those that want to do the right thing, if it involves protecting our waterways, Chris and his team at Puget Soundkeeper are usually at the center of the discussion.

    Dear Member,

    Our July networking mixer event has been canceled due to the 4th of July holiday. Enjoy your time off and we look forward to seeing you in August! 

    • Saturday, August 12, 2017
    • 8:30 AM - 4:30 PM
    • Bull Run Watershed (Portland)
    • 5

    Have you ever wondered where Portland's water comes from?  NWAEP is excited to be sponsoring a tour of the Bull Run Watershed.  The 102 square-mile protected Bull Run Watershed is the primary drinking water supply for the City of Portland, serving more than 950,000 residents in the Portland metropolitan region. The protection boundary is closed to unauthorized public entry, making this a truly unique opportunity to learn about our region's water infrastructure and tour some beautiful protected lands in the process.      

    Registration is FREE for NWAEP members, and $22 for non-members.  Please register here on the NWAEP website or contact Jason Medema directly at Jason.medema@deainc.com to sign up.  Jason will follow up with logistics and details once the registrant list has been finalized. 

    The Bull Run Watershed collects water from rain and snowmelt that then flows to the Bull Run River and its tributaries. The river drains into two reservoirs, where more than 17 billion gallons are stored. The Portland Water Bureau treats the water before it enters into the three conduits that transport it to Portland. The water moves through the system by gravity, requiring no fossil fuel consumption to move water from its intake to the main storage reservoir at Powell Butte.The majority of lands within the Bull Run Watershed Management Unit (BRWMU) are under federal ownership (96%) and the rest are owned by the City of Portland. The BRWMU is carefully managed to sustain and supply clean drinking water to a quarter of Oregon’s population.

    During the tour, a professional natural resources educator from the Portland Water Bureau leads participants through the Bull Run Watershed, discussing Portland's drinking water sources and system. All information is intended for a general audience.
