Updated August 21, 2018 - PROJECT COMPLETED
Environmental Services has completed repairs on 900 feet of public sewer pipes in downtown Portland that were 100 to 140 years old and in deteriorating condition. The SW Alder-Oak-Taylor Sewer Repair Project improvements will protect the public and the environment by reducing the possibility of sewage releases to downtown buildings and streets.
Environmental Services appreciates the cooperation and patience shown by downtown property owners, businesses, residents, and the visiting public during this project. Lessons learned from this project will help plan and complete future sewer repairs in the downtown core.
By coordinating with many property owners, businesses, and residents in the project area, Environmental Services completed the following work:
Repairs were made in three locations (see map).
While the SW Alder-Oak-Taylor Sewer Repair Project is now complete, future work in the downtown core will be necessary to repair aging public sewer infrastructure.
