Sewage release in Marquam Gulch

News Release

August 30, 2014

City of Portland maintenance crews are working to stop a sewage release in Marquam Gulch near Marquam Nature Park. Maintenance crews verified the release at about 11:15 a.m. this morning in a ravine near 1400 SW Broadway Drive.

Sewage is bubbling from the ground, flowing across the Marquam Trail and into a catch basin that drains to the city sewer system. Maintenance crews posted signs at the site of the release to warn the public to avoid the area until they stop the release.

For more information contact Linc Mann, 503-823-5328.

The Bureau of Environmental Services works with Portland residents and businesses to protect water quality, public health, and the environment through wastewater collection and treatment, sewer construction and maintenance, stormwater management, and stream and watershed restoration.
