Arbor Lodge-Kenton Sewer Repair Update

The City of Portland’s Bureau of Environmental Services is continuing our work to repair and replace critical sewer and stormwater infrastructure. Environmental Services will continue to provide
information and updates on construction schedules and activities during the COVID-19 emergency.

Environmental Services is repairing or replacing over 2 miles of public sewer pipes in the Arbor-Lodge Kenton neighborhood area. Many of the existing sewer pipes are more than 80 years old and in deteriorating condition. This project is one of many that will protect the public and the environment by reducing the possibility of sewage releases to homes, businesses, and streets.


CONSTRUCTION SCHEDULE
Construction began in August 2020 and the entire project will take about a year to complete. Depending on the location and construction method, work could last a few weeks to a few months in one area.

For the most up-to-date information and a project map visit the project webpage.

Our contractor strives to provide an accurate two-week look ahead, but work schedules may change due to weather, conditions underground, traffic impacts, subcontractor schedules, and availability of materials. Our contractor will provide notice to residents and businesses near work zones prior to beginning work.


CONSTRUCTION METHODS
The City uses many construction methods to repair or replace sewer pipes. In your area, the City plans to use Open Trench Excavation, Pipe Bursting, and Cured-in-Place-Pipe Lining (CIPP). To learn more about construction methods, go to www.portlandoregon.gov/bes/methods.


CURED-IN-PLACE-PIPE LINING (CIPP)
The pipe lining process involves inserting a flexible liner inside the old pipe, inflating the liner, and exposing it to heat or ultraviolet light to "cure" and harden the liner inside the pipe.

You may smell an odor like plastic or glue during CIPP that will dissipate quickly once the process is complete. The odor is from chemicals in the liner resin. The amounts detected by an independent industrial hygienist are below health risk levels.

To keep the resin odors from entering your home or business through your private sewer, fill any floor drains and infrequently used sinks with a small amount of water. This water will collect in the bend in the drain and block odors from the sewer.


WHAT TO EXPECT DURING CONSTRUCTION
Crews will work during daytime hours from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, and Saturday if needed. Construction can create noise, vibration, odor, and dust and disrupts normal daily activity with traffic delays and restricted parking near the work zone. You can use sewer, water, and other services while we work on your street. To learn more about what to expect during construction go to
