Mt. Scott-Arleta and Woodstock Sewer Repair Project: Design continues
Environmental Services is designing a project to repair or replace approximately 5,600 feet, or about one mile, of public sewer pipes in the Mt. Scott-Arleta and Woodstock neighborhoods. Most of the sewer pipes are more than 85 years old and are deteriorating due to age. The project will protect the public and the environment by reducing the possibility of sewage releases to homes, businesses and streets.
A project map is available on the webpage at www.portlandoregon.gov/bes/mtscott.
Construction is scheduled to begin in the summer of 2017 and take about a year to complete. We will continue to provide more specific information as the project evolves.
DEVELOPMENTS OF NOTE
- Since our last update, we have decided which sewer pipes in your neighborhood will be repaired. See map at www.portlandoregon.gov/bes/mtscott.
- We have identified which construction methods will be used at each location; these are noted on the map.
- We have determined two locations where we anticipate night work will be needed; these are also noted on the map.
- The July 2016 newsletter with more details is available on the project webpage.
- We will continue to update the neighborhoods at meetings of the Mt. Scott-Arleta and Woodstock neighborhood associations. See the webpage and the July 2016 newsletter for these opportunities to learn more about the project, ask questions and give us your input.
