May 2020 Chlorine Water Emergency

Information regarding the emergency response and steps taken to resolve the issue.

Located in the heart of the Columbia River Gorge, Bingen is only 60 miles east of Portland, Oregon. The town site was platted in 1892 by Theodore Suksdorf who named the town after Bingen-on-the-Rhine, Germany. It incorporated in 1924. 


Bingen continues to thrive and adapt as it has moved into the 21st century. Three of the area’s largest employers, SDS Lumber Company, Underwood Fruit and Insitu, are located in Bingen. Our new fire hall was dedicated in 2003 and our downtown revitalization project was completed in the summer of 2004. A new community center/civic complex is the next planned update for the City.


Bingen is located on State Route 14 with one of only two Amtrak stops between Vancouver and Pasco. The Columbia River can be accessed through the Port of Klickitat at Bingen Point. Bingen is a gateway for windsurfing, skiing, snowmobiling, kayaking, hiking, horseback trail riding, mountain biking, and fishing and hunting in the spectacular Columbia River Gorge Scenic Area.


Stop by and visit our small community and businesses.
