North Area Sewer Project construction will begin soon. Bend’s sewer collection system is near capacity. In some areas, existing sewer pipes routinely approach overflow levels. This project will provide needed relief in the north area and improve access to employment land. In parts of the city it is difficult to add any major new employer or residential development due to sewer system capacity. This project includes: • Force main construction from a lift station in Sawyer Park on O.B. Riley Road, south to Third Street and east on Butler Market Road connecting to an existing gravity main line near 4th Street. • Gravity system upgrades between Nels Anderson Road and North Highway 97. The project is expected to be completed by the end of 2017. Visit the project website for project updates at www.bendoregon.gov/northsewer.
