Heavy Rain Causes Sewage Overflows Into Willamette River

(Portland, OR) -- Officials are advising residents to avoid contact with Willamette River water from the Ross Island Bridge downstream due to sewage overflows caused by heavy rain. The Portland Bureau of Environmental Services says normally the advisory last for two days after an overflow, but they're keeping the warning in place through Sunday, January 9th because more heavy rain is forecast later in the week.
