1120 SW Fifth Ave, Suite 800, Portland, OR 97204
After months without storms, Portland is predicted to receive several inches of rain over the next week, beginning on Friday. For the Transportation Bureau, this means we need your help to make sure the city's thousands of catch basins and drains are clear.
Please check the street drains in front of your house or apartment or where you work to check if the drain is full of dirt, leaves, trash or other debris. You can safely clean it out yourself or call 503-823-1700 and ask Transportation Maintenance to clean it.
Although our Maintenance crews are out working on city streets every day and always on the lookout for clogged catch basins, we depend on citizens calls to find trouble spots. And if you don't notice a clogged drain before the rain starts and see your street start flooding, our lines are open 24/7 and ready to take your call at 503-823-1700.
Thank you for helping us keep Portland moving.
