Pre-Construction Activities

Environmental Services is working throughout Portland neighborhoods to repair or replace sections of sewer pipes that are deteriorating or at risk of failure.

During the project design process, crews will be in the neighborhood conducting various investigations to collect information that will help them determine what pipes need to be repaired and what construction methods should be used. Before the actual sewer pipe repair work begins, crews will be in the neighborhood completing various tasks to set up the work zones and prepare for major construction.

Pre-construction activities typically occur over time rather than all at once. These activities may include some or all of the activities listed below.
