SE 2nd and SE 3rd Avenue Sewer Replacement and SE 6th Avenue and Alder Relief Structure: Construction is Complete
Environmental Services has completed work on two inner southeast Portland sewer projects to increase sewer capacity and reduce the potential for basement backups. One project replaced sewer pipes that were in poor condition on SE 2nd and 3rd avenues between Alder and Stark and restored the intersection of SE 3rd and Alder. The other installed an underground vault on SE Alder between SE 6th and Grand to store and divert sewage and stormwater during heavy rain storms to help prevent combined sewer overflows (see maps).
Environmental Services is early in the planning stages for an upgrade to the Alder Pump Station, located at SE Alder and SE Water Avenues. The project will increase the capacity of the pump station and reduce the potential for sewage releases into the Willamette River. Construction is tentatively expected in 2015. More information on this project will be circulated as the project develops.
