Tabor-Powell Sewer Projects

Environmental Services is designing and constructing four sewer repair projects, over three phases, that will replace and repair about 54,750 feet (a little over 10.3 miles) of aging public sewer pipe at over 60 locations in northeast and southeast Portland (see maps below). The public sewer pipes in this project range from 60 to 104 years old. These projects will protect water quality, public health and the environment.

Construction will start in April 2016 in the Powell area and in summer 2016 for the Tabor area. Phase two is anticipated to begin in fall 2016 and phase three in spring 2017.

In the first construction phase, the city's contractor will use open trench excavation to replace sewer pipes. The contractor will use cured-in-place pipe-lining in the following phases, with some spot repairs and lateral replacement. Go to to learn more about sewer construction methods.
