The Fanno Trail remains closed today near the Portland Golf Club while Environmental Services plans repairs of the Garden Home section of the Fanno Pressure Sewer.
The trail has been closed since Friday when trail users reported water seeping to the surface near SW 82nd Avenue. On Saturday, test results confirmed that the leaking water was sewage. The city stopped pumping through the pressure line to stop the sewage leak.
After digging down to the pipe, repair crews found the leak and are investigating repair methods. The trail will remain closed between SW 82nd and SW 86th avenues until the city repairs the pipe and restores the trail surface. Environmental Services will notify the public when the trail re-opens.
