Sewer and Stormwater
Project status

Environmental Services is designing a project to repair large-diameter concrete sewer pipes along SE Stark Street between SE 3rd Avenue and the Willamette River. Repairs will increase the sewer’s resiliency, extend its service life for 50 years or more, and help prevent sewage releases.

Design will begin in January 2021. Construction is expected to begin in August 2021 and take a year to complete.

Project Area

What's Happening Now

Work crews will periodically be in the study area to perform investigative activities. Activities include site visits and evaluation, survey, utility locates, soil sampling, and geotechnical investigations. 

Some investigative activities will require restricting parking and closing travel lanes. The traveling public should expect minor traffic delays. 

Information gathered will help determine the repair locations, construction methods, and how to minimize construction impacts on residents and businesses.
