Environmental Services has completed the design of the Sunnyside East Sewer and Stormwater Project in the Sunnyside Neighborhood to repair, replace, or install 4,800 feet of sewer pipe. Some of the pipe being replaced is 100 years old and deteriorating due to age. Environmental Services will also add 16 green street planters and replace or plant 26 trees to remove 2.4 million gallons of stormwater from sewer pipes. These improvements will protect public health, property and the environment and reduce the possibility of sewage releases into streets, homes and businesses.
Green streets manage stormwater runoff from streets, add green space to neighborhoods and improve sewer system efficiency. The sewer and stormwater improvements will increase sewer capacity, manage stormwater more naturally, and reduce the risks of street flooding and sewage releases to homes, businesses and streets. Environmental Services installs and maintains the planters, and there is no cost to the adjacent property owners.
We will be sending periodic email updates on the schedule, possible traffic detours, delays and lane restrictions. Please sign up now to receive updates by emailing Debbie.Caselton@portlandoregon.gov with "Sunnyside East" in the subject line. If you have questions, please email Debbie or call her at 503-823-2831.
