Environmental Services would like to thank the businesses and community organizations that have recently stepped up to partner as Green Street Stewards. Together with the many individual residents that are caring for green streets in their neighborhoods, these businesses and organizations are helping make Portland's watersheds healthier and our rivers cleaner.
Unlike Portland's 2,300 miles of sewer pipe infrastructure that is underground and out of sight, green streets are part of Portland's storwmwater system that we see every day. Community stewards help keep the green street facilities in their neighborhoods spiffed up and functioning well to manage the rain, with basic maintenance, weeding and trash pick up. Find out more about the Green Street Stewards program here, including upcoming trainings this spring. It's an easy way to help keep your neighborhood looking sharp!
