***IMPORTANT UPDATE*** The City has POSTPONED this meeting!! Stay tuned for a new date.... From the City: ""Commissioners Fritz and Fish have recently been made aware that the Historic Landmarks Commission, in a pending land use review, is considering a condition requiring the continued presence of water in the Mt. Tabor reservoirs. On the advice of the City Attorney’s Office, we are postponing the December 10th community meeting until after the City has reached a final decision in the land use review, to avoid any appearance of pre-judgment on this issue. As a reminder, follow-up materials from the November 18th community meeting will be posted online soon. This includes the comments received as well as answers to the nine questions posed by an organized group at the November meeting." ********************************* "Commisioners Fritz and Fish invite all Portlanders to engage in a conversation about the future of Mt Tabor Reservoirs." SAVE PORTLAND DRINKING WATER NOW is reaching out to inform you about this issue as it *profoundly* effects your health, and the health of your children. Not to mention your water bills.... On December 10th, the city will hold it's second of two recent meetings about the future of Mt Tabor Reservoirs. We strongly encourage you to attend!! City Hall is working hard to shut down and replace Portland's amazing, gravity-fed, naturally-sterilized and aerated drinking water system with hugely expensive and inefficient buried reservoirs. The Federal EPA LT2 rule driving this project is currently under review and is expected to be revised in July of 2016. Science has proven that the rule is not wise. Several other municipalities across the country in similar situations have received extensions, or deferrals, esp given the financial hardship imposed by these projects. There are clearly ways around it. However, as it happens, our city's history contains an Ex Water Bureau Commissioner who eventually lobbied the EPA to write the LT2 rule, and has continued on as executive of the companies who have received all the no-bid, no cap contracts since. He continues as a consultant to this day, selling us massive detrimental projects we don't need to comply with a rule he helped write. And it gets worse from there..... At the last of these meetings, on November 18th, We The People refused to be pandered to once again and loudly made our collective voice heard. Our Commissioners have promised to respond to our concerns. Full video of the 11/18 meeting can be seen here, in two parts: http://vimeo.com/112550446 http://vimeo.com/112569863 In order to show our city we have a voice, it will take YOU and ALL YOUR FRIENDS to show up for the public hearing. Let the commissioners know that you will not stand for them selling away our health for short-term financial gain! • Tell all your friends about this, "LIKE" and "SHARE" all the posts to increase their feed!!

MPORTANT - PLEASE ATTEND: Mt. Tabor Reservoir Disconnection Notice of Public Meetings The Portland Water Bureau’s draft construction plan for disconnecting the Mt. Tabor reservoirs from our drinking water system is now available: http://www.portlandoregon.gov/water/64097. This construction may significantly impact Mt. Tabor Park and could affect its historic structures. There is a brief window for public response to the draft plan and there are two important – and very different – public meetings open for all citizens to attend. At the first meeting, on May 6, the Portland Water Bureau will present a draft construction proposal, and take community questions and comments. Citizens will be specifically asked if this draft construction plan meets their outcome desires for the disconnect project. Parks Commissioner Amanda Fritz will be present at this meeting. At the second meeting, on June 11, the Water Bureau's final proposal will be presented, perhaps having responded to some of the community concerns. Both Parks Commissioner Amanda Fritz and Water Commissioner Nick Fish will be present at this meeting. Attending this meeting will give citizens an understanding of the project, so that they are prepared to make comments into the official case-record during the land use review (to happen in July). These public meetings are co-sponsored by the Portland Water Bureau and the Mt. Tabor Neighborhood Association. Everyone in the city is invited to participate.
