Portland Water Bureau crews are responding to a leak on a water service line near Powell Boulevard and 139th Avenue.

To assess and repair the damaged water pipe, flaggers will direct the traveling public around crews working in the intersection until approximately noon today.

The service line is a three-quarter-inch copper pipe.

One home may be out of service while the service line is repaired.

The traveling public is reminded to stay alert and use caution as traffic may suddenly slow or stop. To avoid traffic delays, motorists are encouraged to use alternate routes around the work site.

The Portland Water Bureau's Maintenance & Construction crews are ready to respond to emergencies, including water main breaks, 24-hours a day, seven days a week. On average, crews respond to 200 main breaks a year.
