Rain Causes Small Sewer Overflow

(Portland, OR) -- Heavy rain on Saturday caused a small combined sewer overflow into the Willamette River just north of Willamette Park. The Portland Bureau of Environmental Services says around 340 gallons of combined sewage flowed into the river. That's not part of the Big Pipe System, which didn't have any overflows during the rain storms. You should avoid contact with that part of the river through Tuesday.
