Sewage leaks into tributary of Tryon Creek in SW Portland

Posted: Updated:
PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

On Monday, Portland city maintenance crews said that sewage was leaking into a pipe that carries stormwater and groundwater to a tributary of Tryon Creek.

Maintenance crews repaired the leak on Tuesday.

The sewage was draining to an unnamed tributary of Tryon Creek in the 7600 block of SW 24th Avenue, about one half block north of SW Barbur Boulevard.

Crews said they do not know how much sewage leaked. 

People should avoid contact with the stream in that area until Wednesday afternoon.
