Portland water activism links

I mentioned in my "Cost of Portland water" post that the city has plans to implement costly water systems that we don't really need, with expected rate increases of 85% over the next 5 years. I've read a little bit about this, but haven't gotten active and don't know enough to really address the issue. But I wanted to provide links for folks who want to learn more and hopefully get involved in shutting down this siphoning of ratepayer money to big corporations:

Friends of the Reservoirs (fighting the good fight on these sorts of issues for at least 8 years, since I moved to Portland!)

Citizens for Portland's Water (not very up to date.)
