Reed Manhole Rehabilitation Project

Sewer and Stormwater
Environmental Services is designing a project to abandon an existing manhole located in a natural area on the Reed College campus and replace it with a new manhole outside of the natural area.
Construction is anticipated to begin in summer 2021.

This project will help protect public health, water quality and the environment and reduce the risks of contamination in the natural area and in Crystal Springs Creek.

Project Area

The existing manhole to be abandoned is located in a natural area on Reed College campus. The proposed location for the new manhole is on SE 28th Avenue, near Crystal Springs Creek.
