City of Portland Environmental Services – your sewer and stormwater utility - is designing a project to replace and construct nearly 750 feet of sewer pipe in your neighborhood. Heavy tree roots have grown into and are clogging and damaging the 102-year-old pipe in Commercial Avenue. In addition, this project will construct a new sewer pipe in NE Mason Street. This sewer repair project will protect public health and the environment by reducing the possibility of costly breaks, sink holes and sewage releases to homes, businesses and streets.
Construction is anticipated to start in late August, and will last approximately four months.
Environmental Services has selected both trenchless and open trench excavation methods for this project. Learn more about these methods at www.portlandoregon.gov/bes/methods.
