SE 14th and Powell

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 a property owner at SE 14th and Powell in the Brooklyn neighborhood to manage stormwater from a total of 8,000 square feet of pavement. This planter manages an average of 176,000 gallons of stormwater annually.  This project was constructed by Braun Construction.
