*Water provided by Rockwood Water PUD (District) is usually from the Bull Run Watershed, purchased from the City of Portland. At times, usually in the summer, the District will augment that supply with groundwater from the District’s wells. The City of Portland also draws water from the Columbia Southshore Wellfield to augment the Bull Run supply during emergency situations or to meet high water demands during the summer months.
