Updated March 3, 2017.
Environmental Services is designing a project to repair about 560 feet of public sewers in NE 17th Street between NE Stanton and NE Siskiyou streets. The existing sewer pipe is 107 years old, in poor condition and will be replaced and upsized to meet current standards. This projects will protect the public and the environment by reducing the possibility of sewage releases to homes and streets. Construction is anticipated to begin in the late fall/early winter of 2017 and will take about four months to complete.
Over the next months, crews will be in the neighborhood gathering information about repair location. Crews will survey the neighborhood, access the sewer from manholes to inspect pipes, and place temporary paint markings on the pavement to mark the locations of pipes and other underground utilities.
