Environmental Services – your sewer and stormwater utility – is designing a project in the Arbor Lodge - Kenton Neighborhood area to repair or replace several thousand feet of public sewer pipe. The average age of the existing sewer pipes is approximately 80 years old and deteriorating due to age. This project is one of many that will protect the public and the environment by reducing the possibility of sewage releases to homes, businesses and streets. Construction is anticipated to begin in the summer of 2020.
Over the next several months, work crews will be in the neighborhood gathering information to define repair locations, select construction methods, and minimize construction impacts on residents and businesses. Crews will survey the neighborhood, access sewers from manholes to inspect pipes, and place temporary paint markings on the pavement to mark the locations of pipes and other underground utilities. To learn more about these activities go to www.portlandoregon.gov/bes/precon.
Contact Matt Gough by email or phone 503-823-5352. In your email and voicemail messages, please provide your name, property address, and the project name (NE Gile Terrace).
We will communicate directly with individual property owners expected to be impacted by this project and keep neighbors informed as well. Before and during construction, we will be sending out periodic email updates to keep you posted on the schedule, pre-construction activities, and traffic restrictions. We encourage you to sign up now to receive updates by emailing Matthew.Gough@portlandoregon.gov with “Arbor Lodge - Kenton” in the subject line.
