Environmental Services will soon begin constructing upgrades to the almost 40-year-old Fremont Pump Station, a sewage pump station located on NE Fremont Drive near NE 89th Avenue. Upgrades will replace aging equipment, ensure safe and reliable operations, and meet current noise and odor control standards. Click here for details about the pump station improvements.


The city's contractor has mobilized crews and begun preparing the Fremont Pump Station site for the upgrades. Construction will go through several phases, and is anticipated to last up to one year.

Typical work hours will be from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, with construction on Saturday if needed.

Completed Activities

The city’s contractor has completed the following activities:

  • Installed temporary on-site fencing for the work site
  • Put up on-site construction office trailer for contractor project management
  • Obtained necessary on-street parking permits for truck unloading zones

Upcoming Activities

The next few weeks will focus on the following activities:

  • Create and post project signage
  • Install erosion control measures
  • Investigate site to verify conditions
  • Install and test bypass pumping system to ensure continued sewer service throughout the project

What to Expect during Construction

You can expect the following activities and impacts during construction:

  • Construction creates noise, vibration, and dust and disrupts normal neighborhood activity.
  • Local access to all properties and driveways will be maintained, but large equipment entering and exiting the work site may delay access.
  • You should expect traffic delays in and near the work area. Please observe traffic control signs and follow the directions of flaggers.
  • On‐street parking may be restricted in and near the work area to create a safe work environment and to stage equipment and materials.
  • Some equipment and materials may be stored on your street overnight.
  • There may be periods of inactivity between construction phases due to a variety of factors including weather, subcontractor schedules, and availability of materials.
  • Please contact city outreach staff member Cheryl Kuck at 503-823-7898 or email if you have concerns such as business operations, disability issues, or medical or business deliveries.
  • A city inspector will be on-site during work hours and may be able to assist you with an immediate need during construction.
  • Sewer, water, and other utilities will remain in service during construction.
