Updated July 5, 2018

Environmental Services is designing a project to repair and upsize 910 feet of sewer pipes on NE Cleveland and NE 10th Aves. Existing pipes are deteriorating due to age and are undersized for the sewer and stormwater flows in this area.

This project will reduce the risks of street flooding and basement sewer backups, accommodate future growth in the area, and help keep stormwater out of the sewer system. These improvements will protect public health, property, and the environment. 

Schedule Update

Construction is anticipated to begin in December 2018 and be completed by March 2019.


Project will take place on NE Cleveland Ave between Skidmore St and Mason St, and on NE 10th Ave between Beech St and Fremont St.

Non-conforming Sewers

In addition to repairing and upsizing the main public sewer lines, this project will also resolve some sewer connections to private properties. Those communications are being done with individual properties directly. If you haven’t been contacted regarding non-conforming sewer, it is likely that it does not apply to you.
