Fanno Creek sewage leak controlled

A private contractor completed repairs to a private sewer line shortly after 8:00 p.m. yesterday to stop a sewage leak to a ditch that drains to a Fanno Creek tributary. The sewage leaked from a private senior care facility.

From the time City ofPortlandmaintenance crews confirmed the leak at about 4:00 p.m. yesterday until it was stopped, an estimated 2,500 gallons of sewage flowed into Fanno Creek near the intersection ofSW Oleson RoadandSW Beaverton-Hillsdale Highway.

The public should avoid contact with Fanno Creek in that area today because of increased bacteria in the water.

For more information contact Linc Mann, 503-823-5328.
