Environmental Services is designing projects in various neighborhoods across the city to replace over 21,000 feet of sewer pipes that are in poor condition. The project will increase sewer system capacity, reduce basement backups, and protect water quality and the environment.
Sewer repair projects usually focus on individual neighborhoods. This project will include construction sites located throughout the city. The pipes targeted for replacement are in particularly poor condition. Planned construction may change slightly as project design continues. We currently expect to start construction in summer 2017.

You may see crews in and near the work areas locating underground utilities and marking streets. They work on sidewalks and streets in the public right-of-way using non-invasive methods and equipment. They may measure the elevation of your first floor and view the front of your house to see if it has a basement. They will not need to enter your private property.
If you have questions, comments or concerns about business operations, disability issues or medical or business deliveries, please contact Debbie Caselton at 503-823-2831 or Debbie.Caselton@portlandoregon.gov.

Thank you for your cooperation during this important sewer repair project. We will provide additional information as project design progresses.
