    Attention residents

    As some of you may have heard, on August 20th 2023 the Portland Water Bureau’s regular testing of water quality detected small amounts of the bacteria Cryptosporidium. Since learning of this, Home Forward staff has been in contact with the Portland Water Bureau.

    We have been assured that healthy individuals can and should continue using water as normal.

    If you are immunocompromised or are taking an immunosuppressive drug, you can kill any potential cryptosporidium bacteria by boiling your water for 1 minute before consuming.

    • If you are boiling the water to drink, let the water cool.
    • Iodine and Chlorine do not kill this bacteria, and to treat for potential bacteria you should boil the water.
    • If you have questions please reach out to your property manager or resident services coordinator.

    Please visit the Center for Disease Control website to get additional information.
