The Southeast Interceptor (SEI) is a multi-purpose infrastructure addition to the City’s sewer collection system and will provide relief to capacity issues in southwest, southeast, northeast, and central areas in Bend.
EFFECTIVE FEBRUARY 7, 2018:
SOUTHEAST INTERCEPTOR IS 100% ACTIVE & FLOWING
All sewer pipe work is complete and the Southeast Interceptor is officially active!
This is huge milestone for the City as it allows additional flows to be added to the system and initiates pump station decommissioning as described above. Crews will now focus their efforts on restoring the road, sidewalks, and landscape. Please be aware of changes along the Neff corridor as we work to complete these surface restorations.

CONSTRUCTION PHASES AND SCHEDULES
THE LINCHPIN FOR SOLVING BEND'S SEWER PROBLEMS
The City of Bend protects drinking water sources, public health, and the environment by conveying and treating wastewater from throughout the City. The SEI will provide relief to capacity issues in southwest, southeast, northeast, and central areas in Bend. This project is noted by the Sewer Infrastructure Advisory Group (SIAG) as “the linchpin for solving Bend’s sewer problems” and has been approved by City Council. There are several segments of design and construction necessary to complete this sewer infrastructure improvement project.
- Increase existing collection system capacity by routing flow away from the downtown core area
- Provide the opportunity to decommission several sewer pump stations
- Provide the availability of gravity sewer service to hundreds of homes that are currently on septic systems
SEI PROJECT CONTACTS
Primary contact will be through DOWL, a local engineering and construction management firm. The City has contracted with DOWL to provide construction management and public outreach services for the SEI construction projects.
