Reader’s Digest Rates Portland as Cleanest City

Of the 50 most populous metropolitan cities in America, Portland is the cleanest (Chicago is the worst) according to Reader’s Digest.

The page highlighting Portland doesn’t glaze over the fact that six miles of the Willamette River is a Superfund clean up site and that our city’s sewer system is currently woefully inadequate. What impressed the authors is that Metro is working to solve the problem with the Big Pipe Project and other clean up initiatives.
