Heavy rainfall leads to another sewage overflow in Gladstone

GLADSTONE, OR (KPTV) -

Heavy rains have led to multiple sewage overflows into the Clackamas River in Gladstone this month.

The city reported another raw sewage discharge Monday at the south end of Portland Avenue at West Clackamas.

People were advised to avoid contact with the river for several days.

The city's public works department said the wastewater and storm water system continues to be overtaxed by the ongoing heavy rains.
