Reduced Inspection Services Sept. 25 - Sept. 29

Inspection scheduling will be affected September 25 through September 29 as our inspection staff will be attending mandatory continuing education training.

Residential Inspections is providing “Day Certain” scheduling. This means the IVR system will offer customers the first available inspection date and your inspection will occur on that day. If you need to schedule inspections 487 (BES On‐Site Stormwater Facility Evaluation) or 507 (Tree Preservation) please call 503‐823‐7388 from 8:30 a.m. – 4 p.m. If you need to schedule inspection 842 (Decommission Septic System) please call 503‐823‐6892 from 8 a.m. – 4 p.m.

The Residential Inspection Routes List is posted each day by 8:15am
