NE 33rd Drive Pump Station Upgrades Project

Sewer and Stormwater
Environmental Services – the City’s sewer and stormwater bureau – is designing a project to upgrade a pump station in Northeast Portland. This project will replace the existing pump station with a new larger pump station.
Design has just begun and construction is anticipated to begin in 2024.

This project will increase pumping capacity, enhance accessibility for maintenance, and improve drainage. The upgrades to the pump station will help protect public health and the environment by reducing sewage backups to homes, businesses, streets and natural areas.

Project Area

This project is located at 7548 NE 33rd Drive, adjacent to the Columbia Slough. 

What's Happening Now

This past summer, City surveyors conducted a survey on and near the project site and adjacent property. The purpose of this survey was to collect information on existing features such as curbs, sidewalks, fences, trees, structures, utilities and to locate existing survey markers to record the right of way lines for the project. The information has helped City engineers and engineering consultants hired by the City to design the project.
