City of Portland Environmental Services continues a project to repair or replace 17,000 feet (more than 3 miles) of public sewer pipes in the Humboldt neighborhood that are on average 85 years old and in deteriorating condition.
This project will protect public health and our environment by reducing the possibility of sewage releases to homes, businesses and streets.
The map posted at www.portlandoregon.gov/bes/Humboldt shows the anticipated construction locations through September 30. Please be aware that schedules are subject to change due to a variety of factors, including conditions underground, weather, traffic impacts and subcontractor and materials availability.
Residents and businesses should expect periods of inactivity between each phase, ranging from a few days to a few weeks.
The duration depends on a variety of variables including underground conditions, weather, traffic impacts, subcontractor schedules, quality control tests and availability of materials.

Environmental Services thanks residents for their cooperation during this project. Please contact them with any questions or concerns, such as effects on business operations, medical or business deliveries, the need for help with access for people with disabilities.
