Portland Commissioner Dan Saltzman apologizes to Southeast Portland residents over Bungled Sewer Fee Program

Portland Commissioner Dan Saltzman apologized to Southeast Portland residents, at the Brooklyn Neighborhood general meeting Wednesday evening, for a sewer repair project that went awry.

As part of a citywide effort to build additional public sewers, the Bureau of Environmental Services sent letters in June to 127 property owners in Southeast and Northeast Portland.

The letters alerted the property owners that their sewer did not conform to the city’s plumbing and sewer codes and they would have to pay to bring it into compliance.

If you have received one of these letters and you need help in understanding what your options are you can contact the Brooklyn Help Line at 503/241-4540.
