Blocked sewer line overflows into Fanno Creek tributary
A blocked sewer line in Southwest Portland dumped about 28,000 gallons of sewage into a Fanno Creek tributary Monday.
Portlands Bureau of Environmental Services said the sewage flowed for several hours from a manhole on a hillside near Southwest Shattuck Road north of Hamilton Street. City crews cleared a blocked public sewer line Monday night to stop the sewage leak.
The leak was discovered at about 3:15 p.m. Dec. 14. Crews stopped the leak at about 8 p.m.
