The City of Portland’s Bureau of Environmental Services is continuing our work to repair and replace critical sewer and stormwater infrastructure. Environmental Services will continue to provide information and updates on construction schedules and activities during the COVID-19 emergency.
Updated May 7, 2020
Environmental Services – your sewer and stormwater utility - is extending the public sewer system in several locations across northeast Portland. This work is part of the City’s ongoing effort to provide property owners a way to directly and independently connect to the public sewer system. The project will also help protect public health, property, and the environment by increasing the capacity of the public sewer system, reducing the potential for basement backups, and reducing the likelihood of emergency work in the future.
Open trench construction will be used to complete all work. Go to www.portlandoregon.gov/bes/opentrench to view photos and learn more. After sewer construction, crews will backfill trenches and apply a temporary asphalt patch. The temporary patch may be in place for several weeks while quality control inspections occur. After all work has met required standards, crews will return to apply a permanent patch.
Some construction occurred in 2018. Additional work will occur in 2019 and take about four to five weeks at each location to install new public sewer pipe (see map below for locations). The city’s contractor will provide notice to adjacent properties one to two weeks before construction begins. All work will occur between 7:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, with the option of working Saturdays.
