Humboldt Sewer Repair Project Update

Environmental Services will begin construction this fall on a project to repair or replace over 17,000 feet (over 3 miles) of public sewer pipes in the Humboldt neighborhood. This work will also include repairing or adding over 2,000 feet of service laterals that connect houses and businesses from the curb to the public sewer in the street. Most of the sewer pipes are more than 85 years old and are deteriorating due to age.

Humboldt Sewer Repair Project Update: September 28, 2016

Construction Coming Soon

Environmental Services will begin construction this fall on a project to repair or replace over 17,000 feet (over 3 miles) of public sewer pipes in the Humboldt neighborhood. This work will also include repairing or adding over 2,000 feet of service laterals that connect houses and businesses from the curb to the public sewer in the street. Most of the sewer pipes are more than 85 years old and are deteriorating due to age. The project will protect the public and the environment by reducing the possibility of sewage releases to homes, businesses and streets.

A project map is available on the webpage at www.portlandoregon.gov/bes/humboldt.

SCHEDULE

Construction is scheduled to begin in November and take about a year to complete.

PRE-CONSTRUCTION ACTIVITIES

Over the next several months, crews will be locating utilities, surveying, inspecting sewer pipes and manholes, tree trimming, installing erosion controls, and mobilizing equipment and materials. These activities occur over time, rather than all at once.

To be added to the project's email update list, email Rhetta Drennan with "Humboldt" in the subject line. To receive project traffic alerts by text, include your mobile phone number and the name of your carrier in the body of the email. Major mobile networks are capable of this, but message and data rates may apply.
