Water main break floods streets in NE Portland
PORTLAND, Ore. (KPTV) - Crews responded to a water main break in northeast Portland overnight.
Just after 11:30 p.m. on Sunday, Portland Fire & Rescue responded to a “water emergency” at Northeast 107th Avenue and Northeast Wygant Street, in the Parkrose neighborhood.
The break caused flooding in the area, and left an apartment complex without water.
The Portland Water Bureau says an eight inch main break occurred at the location. According to the bureau, the cast iron main was installed in 1939.
Crews replaced a section of the main and flushed the water out of the main for quality. Water service will be restored to affected customers later Monday morning, according to the bureau.
