The Dalles Downtown Stormwater Catch Basin Cleaning

Starting Monday October 18, 2021 and lasting through Friday October 22, 2021, The Dalles Public Works crews will be cleaning storm water catch basins in the Downtown Area. The purpose of this work is to protect property and the environment. Cleaning catch basins allows for fast drainage into the storm water conveyance system.

Crews are scheduled to work on First, Second, Third and Fourth Streets from the west side of Lincoln Street to the east side of Taylor Street.

Work will occur between 9:00 p.m. and 5:30 a.m. each night. The overnight schedule will cause the least disruption to traffic and businesses. We ask that you park so that the catch basins are accessible during the night work hours.
