Environmental Services began construction in October 2015 on the Hollywood-Grant Park Sewer and Stormwater Project at more than 80 sites. Over the next year and a half, this project will repair or replace 38,000 feet (about 7 miles) of public sewer pipes that are between 75 and 110 years old and in poor condition. The work includes constructing 12 green street planters and six sumps that will remove more than 1.2-million gallons of stormwater from the sewer system annually. These improvements will protect public health, property and the environment, and reduce the possibility of sewage releases into streets, homes and businesses.
There may be periods of inactivity between construction phases.
The contractor will use open trench construction, pipe bursting and cured-in-place pipe lining to repair sewers. Go to www.portlandoregon.gov/bes/methods for more information about sewer construction methods.
You can receive text messages of urgent traffic alerts for this project by emailing us to be put on the text message list. In the body of the email, provide your mobile phone number and the name of your network carrier. Messages are 1-2 sentences long and convey information such as road closures and openings. Major mobile networks are capable of this, but message and data rates may apply.
Do you have problems with water seeping into your basement? Please let Environmental Services know by taking the online basement moisture survey. Survey responses help identify neighborhoods with seepage problems and design stormwater management projects.
