Consortium Launches Personal Preparedness Campaign


This spring, the Consortium launched a campaign focused on educating the public about the importance of having an emergency supply of water in their preparedness kits. The campaign includes water-focused emergency preparedness information on the Consortium's website, Facebook page, Twitter account, and ads on 24 TriMet buses.

How water providers are preparing for emergencies big and small  
Did you know that the Consortium and its water provider members own 13 mobile water treatment and distribution trailers which can be used to distribute water to the public in an emergency? The nine distribution and four treatment systems are just a small part of what the Consortium and local water providers are doing to plan for events that could impact local water supplies.

Find out more about the work that the Consortium and its members are doing to make the region more resilient.
