Environmental Services has almost completed the design of a project to repair over 15,000 feet, or about 3 miles, of public sewers in the St. Johns and Cathedral Park neighborhoods. Many of the sewer pipes are about 80 years old and deteriorating due to age. This project will protect the public and the environment by reducing the possibility of sewage releases to homes, businesses and streets.
Construction is anticipated to begin in summer 2018 and take about a year and a half to complete. More detailed schedule information will be provided prior to construction.
A project map is available at www.portlandoregon.gov/bes/stjohnscpark.
WHAT’S HAPPENING NOW?
In the coming months, you may see crews surveying, marking utilities, sampling soil and other preconstruction activities. Visit www.portlandoregon.gov/bes/precon for more information about preconstruction. These activities typically occur over time, rather than all at once.
