Sewage release to a Fanno Creek tributary

Sanitary Sewage Overflow Advisory

December 30, 2015

Field crews investigating high bacteria counts in a southwest Portland creek today discovered a broken sewer pipe leaking sewage into an unnamed tributary of Fanno Creek. Sewage is leaking into the tributary just off SW 48th Place between SW Lowell and SW 48th Avenue.

Maintenance crews are assessing the broken pipe and planning repairs. People should avoid contact with water in the creek until crews repair the broken pipe.

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.
