On Saturday, April 23, 2016 the City will be hosting the 5th Annual Urban Runoff 5K Race, followed by the Green Neighbor Family Festival. The race and festival help to raise awareness of water pollution and raise money to support clean water education in local schools. Participants can register individually or they can form a team. Several local communities and businesses have registered teams in previous years. We look forward to you joining us!

In Portland, we’re lucky to have water resources at our door step - Stroudwater and Fore Rivers, Back Cove, Capisic Pond, Casco Bay. Clean water is important to our economy and way of life.
The City and our partners work hard to ensure clean water. When it comes to keeping our rivers, streams, and bays clean, everyone plays an important role.
