The goal of the SE Septic to Sewer Project is to design a sewer system and develop a financing strategy that will provide sewer service to approximately 550 homes that currently rely on septic systems for wastewater disposal.

The project study area is the neighborhood bounded by Reed Market Road to the north, 15th Street to the east, Ferguson Road to the south, and generally west of the COID irrigation canal (see Area Map below, area A-1). The City may use the strategies and policies developed from this project to assist in transitioning other areas of the City from septic systems to sewer.


The project focuses on two goals: 1) Design a sewer system to serve the area, and 2) Develop a financing strategy to help homeowners transition from septic to sewer.

A 13-member Citizen Advisory Committee, which is meeting monthly over the course of the project, will help develop project policy and financial strategies. This group will make recommendations to the City Council.

MEETING LOCATION/DATE/TIME

Where:Bend City Hall - Council Chambers, 710 NW Wall St., Bend, OR 97701

When:1st Thursday of each month

When: 4 p.m. - 6 p.m.

Meeting materials are posted below. All Citizen Advisory Committee meetings are open to the public.

The City has contracted with a team of engineering, financial and public involvement experts led by the engineering / project management firm, DOWL, to develop a design for the sewer as well as the financial strategy and to lead the public involvement process.
