Taggart Outfall Rehabilitation Project Complete
Taggart Outfall Sewer Pipe was built in 1906 by hand with picks, axes, horses, and dynamite and now serves nearly 18,000 homes and 1,700 commercial properties in SE Portland. It is 114 years old and nearly at the end of its functional life. The design work on rehabilitation of this sewer tunnel started in 2014 with actual construction work starting in 2020.
