Possible sewage release to Oregon Slough from Hayden Island

Sewage overflowed from a manhole in a parking lot onHaydenIslandlate Sunday, February 19. An estimated 150 gallons of sewage drained into a catch basin that probably drains to the Oregon Slough.

Maintenance crews responded to reports of a sewage release shortly after 9:00 p.m. Sunday in a parking lot near the intersection ofN Jantzen AvenueandN Center Avenuejust west of Interstate 5. After about 90 minutes, crews cleared a blocked sewer pipe to stop the release.

As a precaution, people should avoid contact with the Oregon Slough in that area today and tomorrow.
