Portland Bureau of Environmental Services has completed design of 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. Construction is scheduled to begin in June of 2017 and take about a year to complete.
Since their last update, BES has decided which sewer pipes will be repaired and what construction method will be used at each location. They have determined two locations where evening or night work will be needed. If you can’t attend our meeting (or Mt. Scott–Arleta’s meeting earlier in the evening), you can find an updated map and newsletter on the project website, www.portlandoregon.gov/bes/mtscott.
