Citywide Sewer Repair

Updated November 2, 2018

Environmental Services is constructing at various locations across the city to replace about 20,000 feet, or almost 4 miles, of sewer pipes that are in poor condition. These repairs will increase sewer system capacity, reduce basement backups, and protect water quality and the environment. 

Construction Scope and Schedule

There will be construction in several neighborhoods throughout Portland. At times, crews will work simultaneously in different neighborhoods. Environmental Services has started construction for this project, with plans to complete work spring 2019. Depending on the site and construction methods, work could last up to a month or more in your neighborhood. Residents will be notified before construction begins in each location.

For more detailed information about construction and where we are, go to the construction page.
