SE Hawthorne-Salmon Area Green Street and Sewer Project Update

SE Hawthorne-Salmon Area Green Street and Sewer Project: July 18, 2016

Environmental Services continues construction on the SE Hawthorne-Salmon Area Green Street and Sewer Project. The project includes installing 23 green street planters, planting 100 street trees, and repairing or replacing over 10,000 feet of public sewer pipe. These improvements will extend the service life of our sewer system and protect public health, property and the environment by reducing the possibility of sewage releases into streets, homes and businesses.

Working for clean rivers

Over one-third of Portland's 2,500 miles of sewer pipes are more than 80 years old. Portland combines sewer improvements that replace or repair Portland’s aging sewer pipes with green streets, ecoroofs, trees and other green infrastructure to increase sewer system efficiency, and protect water quality, public health, and the environment. Green infrastructure keeps stormwater out of the sewer system, filters pollutants, provides habitat and increases neighborhood green space for healthier watersheds.
