Environmental Services continues critical services during COVID-19 emergency; focuses on public health and environment
During the COVID-19 emergency that affects us all, Environmental Services is taking extra measures to protect the public and construction crews as we continue to collect and treat wastewater from every household in Portland and work to upgrade the city’s aging sewer and stormwater infrastructure.
Wipes Clog Pipes: During COVID-19 crisis and every day, prevent sewage overflows by flushing only the 3Ps
