  • Existing ditch on SW Hamilton Construction begins in summer 2015 on improvements to ditches and the road shoulder along SW Hamilton Street between SW 45th and SW 47th avenues

  • Multnomah Village green street Green street facilities in Multnomah Village capture stormwater and allow it to soak into the ground

  • Volunteer work crew Environmental Services works with partners throughout the watershed to restore riparian habitat

  • SW 45th Avenue culvert A culvert on Fanno Creek makes it difficult for fish to get past this great blue heron - a project to replace the culvert at SW 45th Avenue will improve stormwater conveyance and enable fish passage

  • Fanno Wetlands

Fanno Creek starts in Portland’s West Hills and meanders 15 miles through residential, commercial, and industrial lands of west Portland, Beaverton, Tigard, and portions of Washington and Clackamas Counties. Many streamside parks — including Albert Kelly, Gabriel, and Woods Memorial Parks — offer opportunities to explore Fanno Creek and its tributaries.

Environmental Services and many partners are working to improve the health of Fanno Creek and its watershed.
