Sewer Service Verification and Connection

Sewer Verification

If you have a question about whether you are connected to the City sewer or a septic tank, we are able to check our records for you. If we are unable to find a record, we can perform a dye or smoke test for verification. Call Public Works Maintenance at (503) 635-0280 to arrange an appointment.

Due to a high volume of real estate transactions this service can only be requested by the homeowner. All other parties requesting a dye or smoke test will be charged a fee of $60.00 per transaction.

Sewer Connection

If you are currently on a septic tank and would like to speak with someone about connecting to the City's Sewer Collection System, please contact the Engineer on Duty - Engineering Department, at (503) 635-0270.
