The City of Portland has contracted with Interlaken to complete the ESCSO Communications and Control Sewer Level Monitoring project. This project consists of installing monitoring equipment at two sites so the Bureau of Environmental Services can oversee sewer level flows. Here are a few pictures of the site at SE 22nd and Lambert near Sellwood. We are removing the existing manhole lid in order to install a new lid that was custom fabricated to accomodate the monitoring equipment.
