Heavy rain early Thursday (May 23, 2013) caused combined sewage and stormwater to overflow to the Willamette River from three outfall pipes:
- On the east bank of the river just north of the Morrison Bridge;
- On the west bank of the river at the Burnside Bridge; and
- On the east bank of the river just north of the Fremont Bridge.
The public should avoid contact with the water in the Willamette River north of the Morrison Bridge today and tomorrow.
The overflows from the three outfall pipes all began at around 2:00 a.m. on May 23 and lasted for several hours until heavy rain subsided.
