Powell Sewer Repair Project Update

Powell Sewer Repair Project Construction Update: July 14, 2017

Construction continues on Environmental Services’ SE Powell Sewer Repair Project.

This project in its entirety is scheduled to be completed in the fall of 2017.

There will be construction phases at each location including:

  • video inspection
  • saw-cutting
  • spot repairs
  • manhole replacement
  • pipe installation
  • lateral connection from each building to the curb
  • stormwater inlet replacement
  • temporary paving
  • final trench paving and restoration.


The maps posted at show the anticipated 90-day construction schedule and a look ahead schedule through July 28, 2017 Work on each phase will take a few weeks to complete and there will be periods of inactivity between construction phases which are listed above.

The contractor will apply temporary pavement after completing pipe installation in all work areas. Final trench paving and restoration will occur later as scheduling and weather allows.

Please be aware that our contractor will be taking advantage of dry and warmer weather as it happens for both asphalt and concrete final trench paving. There will be short notice given and street closures for up to a week where concrete is poured.

Areas on the map marked in gray are currently not on the schedule or are not completed.

The construction schedules are subject to change due to underground conditions, weather, traffic impacts, subcontractor schedules and availability of materials.


With questions or comments, please contact Joe Annettor 503-823-2934.

Thank you,

Joe Annett
