Supporting Low Impact Recreation on the Clackamas River

Although the Lower Clackamas River is a wonderful recreation resource in the Portland Metro area, we also want to remind folks that the River is a drinking water source for over 300,000 people.

“I’m for Water Pledge.”

This January the Clackamas River Water Providers are supporting the EPA’s WaterSense “I’m for Water Pledge.” Join thousands in making a commitment to save water. Take the pledge and use the WaterSense  2023 monthly resolutions checklist to help you use less water (and spend less on your utility bills!) year round. By taking one or two simple steps each month, it’s easy to do your part to protect our water for future generations.

CRWP Winterization Tips

The weather forecast for the end of this week (December 22 & 23) is calling for temperatures in the teens and 20’s which can cause major problems if you have not taken the proper precautions to protect and insulate the plumbing at your homes and businesses.

The Clackamas River Water Providers (CRWP) have gathered up some great information, tips, and videos to help you get ready for the freezing temperatures which will prevent water damage and costly plumbing repairs later.

Do not call 911 if there is a water line break.  Call your local water provider.  Who’s your CRWP water provider? Click here, or click here for more regional water provider information.

2023 Water Calendars are Now Available!

The theme for the 2023 Calendar is “Our Healthy Watershed”.  Students from 22 classes and 15 different schools submitted pictures depicting what a healthy watershed looks like to them.  One picture from each class was chosen to be in the calendar and displayed on the CRWP website for two weeks so family, friends, and our community members could vote for which one of the 22 pictures would be on the cover.

Calendars are available to the public at your water provider’s front offices, local libraries, and upon request by contacting our office at 503-723-3511 or by emailing [email protected].
