People in Gladstone are being advised to avoid contact with the Clackamas River due to a raw sewage discharge into the water Monday.

The city reported that the waste water and storm water systems were overtaxed by heavy rains Monday night.

The discharge occurred at the storm water outfall at the south end of Portland Avenue at West Clackamas Boulevard.

People were advised to avoid the river for the next several days.
