Environmental Services is continuing construction on a project in inner southeast Portland to repair the deep and wide Southeast Interceptor sewer line that is deteriorating due to age. The sewer line runs parallel to the Willamette River under inner southeast neighborhoods and is between 5 to 6 feet wide and 25 to 54 feet below the surface.
