PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Crews are cleaning up after sewage overflowed from a manhole in northwest Portland. 

Sewer maintenance crews responded Saturday afternoon to a report of sewage overflowing from a manhole on Northwest Thompson Road and Devuto Lane.

An estimated 9,000 gallons of sewage flowed from the manhole, over the road, and into a storm drain. Crews say most of the sewage was contained in a ditch and the street, but some is expected to reach Cedar Mill Creek. 

People are advised to avoid the creek through Monday.

Warning signs have been posted as a precaution.
