Raleigh Water District is a domestic water supply district which operates under state law set out in Oregon Revised Statutes Chapter 264. The district covers approximately 2� square miles of unincorporated Washington County in the Raleigh Hills area bordering the cities of Portland, Tigard, and Beaverton, and has a population of just under 4500. The district is governed by a 5-member Board of Commissioners who are elected at-large from the community and serve 4-year terms of office.

The Board of Commissioners holds a monthly public meeting at the district office on the third Wednesday of the month at 7:00PM, excluding the month of August. Special meetings can also be called if necessary. All members of the public are welcome to attend. Meetings generally last 1 to 1� hours.

All water is purchased wholesale from the City of Portland Water Bureau’s Bull Run Supply System, which allows the district to provide its customers with water of exceptional quality from the Bull Run watershed. Water is piped in from the Powell Butte Reservoir to the Washington County Supply Line which supplies our district. We do not take any water from the Willamette River for our district.

 The district is a member of the American Water Works Association, the Regional Water Providers Consortium, the Water Managers Advisory Board of Bull Run Water Users, and the Special Districts Association of Oregon
