Environmental Services – your sewer and stormwater utility – is designing a project to repair several hundred feet of public sewer pipe in your neighborhood that is showing signs of deterioration due to age. This project will protect public health, property and the environment. Construction is anticipated to begin in Fall 2019.
Over the next few months, crews will be in the neighborhood periodically to locate and mark underground utilities by painting stripes on streets and sidewalks or placing colored flags in landscaped areas. Each color indicates what is buried below. Blue for water, yellow for natural gas, green for sewer, etc. Please visit www.portlandoregon.gov/bes/preconstruction for a list and description of other activities that occur before the sewer work can take place.
Please sign up now to receive updates by emailing Matthew.Gough@portlandoregon.gov with “Grand Hancock” in the subject line. We will send periodic updates on project schedule and traffic information. Let us know if you have concerns such as business operations, disability issues or medical or business deliveries.
