I know that someone beat me to this, I think it might have been the nice folks over at Blog Town, but the city’s water blog is relatively fascinating. At least to people who live here.

Portland has the best tap water I’ve ever tasted, so I enjoy reading about the folks and technologies behind it.
In the blog today: The water bureau’s fleet is the largest in the country to run on B99 biodiesel. Yay, team. My husband points out that the B99 instead of B100 is because of a very poorly-worded tax rule that gives you a tax break if you use MIXED fuels (e.g. B99 is 99% biodiesel, 1% dinosaur, as he puts it), but not if you use pure biodiesel. Anyway, here’s the blog:
