Planning Some River Recreation?
Today the Willamette River through Portland is cleaner than it's been in decades, thanks in large part to ratepayers’ investment in the Big Pipe project that dramatically reduced combined sewer overflows.
With rare exceptions, our stretch of the river is clean enough for swimming, boating and other recreation. How clean? Find out for yourself. Get the latest bacteria and temperature test results.

Stay safe! Keep in mind many factors affect your safety on the river, including temperature, currents and debris in the river as well as your skills and ability in the water. Remember, cold water is healthy for fish, but it can be uncomfortable and even unsafe for people. Know the water, know your abilities, and stay safe while enjoying the river.

How often do we test?
Summer weekly testing: Environmental Services collects weekly samples from late May to October to measure for E. coli bacteria and temperature at five popular public entry points. Water samples are collected on Wednesdays and results posted by Friday morning – just in time for the weekend. (https://www.portlandoregon.gov/bes/57781)

HAP supporter, Denis, has a lovely pad ON the Willamette River with a great deck that features incredible views of downtown Portland and Oaks Park.
Burgers and dogs (with condiments) will be provided, along side beverages from Kona Brewing. Please bring a potluck side dish of your choice and come join in on the fun!

Afterwards we will have a light debriefing on what we learned this year and we'll also strategize on what we need to do in 2018. This event will provide a great opportunity to celebrate, and learn a few things about HAP, plus you'll get to know some of your fellow Huggers while fully clothed!

Depending on weather, you might consider bringing a suit along just in case you decide to take a dip! Hope to see you there! #HAP #willametteriver #humanaccessproject #portland #oregon #huggers
