Environmental Services is in design for four sewer repair projects that will replace and repair approximately 37,000 feet (a little over 7 miles) of aging public sewer pipe at over 60 locations in northeast and southeast Portland (see map below). The public sewer pipes in this project range in age from 60 and 104 years old, with the majority being over 90 years old. Projects like this, that repair and replace aging sewer pipes, are important for protecting water quality, public health and the environment.
The design process will continue through spring 2015, and construction is anticipated to begin in December 2015. We will be providing information about these projects through the mail, this website and at business and neighborhood association meetings.
As part of the design process, you may see city crews on the streets in your area conducting utility location and geotechnical surveys, and other similar work.
