Water Main Repair Closes Northeast 33rd Avenue between Morris and Klickitat Streets

Portland  Water  Bureau  crews  are  responding  to  a  water  main   break on Northeast 33rd Avenue. To  assess  and  repair  the  damaged  water pipe,  crews  must  shut  down both lanes of Northeast 33rd Avenue between Northeast Morris and Klickitat streets  will closed until approximately 8 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 20

 The main is a 24-inch cast iron pipe from 1906.  

 Approximately 50 homes may be out of service while the main is repaired. Others may experience discolored water as sediment inside the pipe is disturbed. This water is safe to drink but customers should run their taps until water runs clear.

The traveling public is reminded to stay alert and use caution as traffic may suddenly slow or stop. To avoid traffic delays, motorists are encouraged to use alternate routes around the work site. 

The Portland Water Bureau’s Maintenance & Construction crews are ready to respond to emergencies, including water main breaks, 24-hours a day, seven days a week. On average, crews respond to 200 main breaks a year.
