Montavilla North Sewer Repair

Button. Click to sign up for email updatesUpdated June 13, 2017

Environmental Services is designing a project to repair or replace about 16,331 feet (over three miles) of 100-year-old public sewer pipes in the Montavilla Neighborhood, north of Stark Street, that are deteriorating due to age. The project will also install 15 new manholes, repair 72 manholes, and replace 221 public sewer connections to private properties. This investment in your neighborhood will ensure continued dependable sewer service and protect the public and our environment by reducing the possibility of sewage releases to homes, businesses, and streets.

Construction is anticipated to begin in the spring of 2018 and take about a year and a half to complete. 

Noise Variance

Environmental Services is applying for a noise variance to allow open trench work and cured-in-place-pipe lining (CIPP) at the following locations:

  • one night at intersection of E Burnside Street and SE Gilham Avenue
  • four nights on E Burnside Street between SE 68th and 69th Avenues
  • three nights at the intersection of NE Halsey Street and NE 71st Avenue
  • one night between NE Broadway and Schuyler Streets between NE 35th and 36th Avenues

A variance is required when work occurs outside normal construction hours of 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Saturday. This includes all work after 6 p.m. and before 7 a.m., Monday through Saturday, and all hours on Sunday.

Your comments regarding the proposed night work are valuable and can be submitted by letter or email to:

Portland Noise Office
