Citywide Sewer Repair

Environmental Services is finalizing the design to repair deteriorating sewer pipes in several neighborhoods across the city. The Citywide 2017 Sewer Repair Project will replace about 20,000 feet, or almost 4 miles, of sewer pipes at 53 different locations. The work will increase sewer system capacity, reduce basement backups, and protect water quality and the environment.

Construction Scope and Schedule

Construction will occur in several neighborhoods throughout Portland. Crews may work at multiple locations in different neighborhoods at the same time. Construction is anticipated to begin as soon as fall 2017 and be completed in spring 2019. Depending on the work sites and construction methods, work could last up to a month or more in your neighborhood. An exact schedule is unknown until a contractor is hired to do the work. We will notify you in advance closer to construction.
