PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) -- A pump station in the Portland suburb West Linn lost power, leading to the release of about 300,000 gallons of sewage into the Willamette River.

Clackamas County officials said the pumps were back in operation Sunday after two hours, and signs were up to warn the public against contact with the water near the pump station.
