SE 22nd to 24th and Caruthers

The Tabor to the River Program uses green infrastructure to manage both public and private stormwater runoff at the source. 

The City recently partnered with 8 residential properties on SE Caruthers in the Seven Corners area to manage stormwater from a total of 7,600 ft2 of roof area. These rain gardens and planters reduce stormwater flows entering the local sewer by an average of 170,000 gallons of runoff annually. Projects were constructed by Blossom Earthworks and Dinsdale Landscape
