Portland Water District Replenishes Plumbing Assistance Program With $10,000 Award

The award helps with repairs for low-income residents

Last night, the Portland Water District Board of Trustees continued their support of the Home Plumbing Assistance Program with a $10,000 contribution.  The money will be used to help low-income residents repair leaks and install water efficient devices.

Since the inception of the Water Conservation Program in 1995, nearly 550 low-income households have been helped by over $400,000 in contributions.  The Portland Water District's last contribution to the program was $20,000 in 2010.

The Program is administered by The Opportunity Alliance (Formerly PROP and Youth Alternatives Ingraham), which also administers the Portland Water District's Low-Income Rate program.

For more information about these programs or to apply, Portland Water District customers should contact The Opportunity Alliance at (207) 553-5800.
