Hillsdale South Sewer Repair Project

COVID-19 Banner Sign up for email updates

Updated January 11, 2021

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.

Environmental Services has successfully completed sewer construction on the Hillsdale South Sewer Repair Project located in SW Portland. The sewer improvements help protect the public and the environment by reducing the possibility of costly breaks, leaks, blockages and sewage releases to homes, businesses, and streets.

Project Area

The Hillsdale South Project is one of three sewer repair projects planned for the Hillsdale area. Environmental Services is in the early stages of planning and design for the Middle and North sections. A construction date for these sections is not currently known, but it is anticipated that this work will take place following the completion of the South section.

Project Accomplishments

By coordinating with many property owners, businesses, and residents in the project area, Environmental Services completed the following work:

  • Replaced and upsized 7,229 feet of 80-year-old public sewer pipes.
  • Repaired, replaced, and built 74 sewer service laterals.
  • Repaired, replaced, and built four manholes throughout the project area.

A Note of Appreciation

The Hillsdale South Sewer Repair Project was a major collaborative construction project. Environmental Services knows it has meant significant inconveniences for businesses and the many people living, working, and visiting in the project area. We appreciate your cooperation and patience as we worked in the neighborhood to complete the necessary public sewer repairs. Thank you.
