Taggart Outfall Sewer Repair Project: Design continues

Environmental Services is designing a project to repair about 3,700 feet of the 105-year-old brick Taggart Outfall sewer so that it can operate for another hundred years.

Taggart Outfall Sewer Repair Project: Design continues

Environmental Services is designing a project to repair about 3,700 feet of the 105-year-old brick Taggart Outfall sewer so that it can operate for another hundred years. The sewer pipes are showing signs of cracks, fractures, missing brick and mortar, and obstructions in the pipe, putting the Outfall at risk of structural failure. This project will allow the Taggart Outfall sewer to property perform its role in protecting public health, water quality and the environment.

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

SCHEDULE

Construction is anticipated to begin in summer 2017 and take approximately six to eight months to complete. Because crews can work in the Outfall pipes only when the weather is dry, completion may require nighttime work or a second construction season in summer 2018.

Please take some time now to consider the needs of your neighborhood or business and let us know if you have concerns about business operations, disability issues, medical or business deliveries, and other information you want us to consider. We will be glad to work with you.

DEVELOPMENTS OF NOTE

  • Environmental Services conducted a thorough study of the Outfall’s condition, needed repairs and best access points along the sewer line for future construction with the fewest possible impacts to the surrounding community.
  • The project team is planning for six ground access locations at manholes in the project area, indicated with bold highlights on the project map.
  • The access locations are expected to have adjacent staging areas for materials and construction vehicles and some traffic impacts. Visit the project webpage for possible traffic impacts.
  • The September 2016 newsletter with more details is available on the project webpage.
  • We will continue to update the neighborhoods at meetings of the Brooklyn and Hosford-Abernethy neighborhood associations. Watch for flyers or postcards about these opportunities to learn more about the project, ask questions and give us your input.

Portland Hosts Public Forums on Proposals for Retrofitting Unreinforced Masonry Buildings Vulnerable During an Earthquake

Portland Hosts Public Forums on Proposal for Retrofitting Unreinforced Masonry Buildings Vulnerable During an Earthquake

News Release from Portland Bureau of Emergency Management Downloadable file: 2016-09-19_Media_Advisory_-_URM_meeting_Sept_22.doc
On Thursday (9/22), Portland is hosting the second of two public forums to discuss a draft proposal to require the seismic retrofit of the city's 1,700 public and privately-owned unreinforced masonry (URM) buildings. The forum is being held at the Portland Development Commission (222 NW 5th Ave) from 6 to 8 p.m. URM buildings are typically structures built before the 1960s using brick with little to no steel reinforcement in the walls that are highly vulnerable to collapse even during a moderate earthquake.

The draft proposal was developed by the Portland URM Seismic Retrofit Project, a group sponsored by Commissioner Steve Novick that includes the Portland Bureau of Development Services (BDS), Portland Bureau of Emergency Management (PBEM), Portland Development Commission (PDC), and community members. Since December 2014, the group has been meeting to find ways to reduce Portland's risk from URM buildings.

Information about the proposal, along with a searchable URM map and way to provide feedback, is available at http://www.portlandoregon.gov/bds/urms.

Questions? Please email BDS.URMBuildings@portlandoregon.gov or call (503) 823-7300.
