The project replaced 3,800 feet of sewer pipe with an average age of 102 years. The project also constructed 24 green street planters and added two blocks of pervious paving that will keep 1.8 million gallons of stormwater out of the sewer system annually.
These improvements help protect water quality, public health, and the environment by increasing the reliability and efficiency of our sewer system and reducing the possibility of sewage releases into streets, homes and businesses.
Tabor to the River
The Clinton Green Street and Sewer Project is part of the Tabor to the River Program, which combines innovative stormwater management techniques with sewer repairs and improvements to stop basement flooding, manage stormwater more naturally, and to restore watershed health. The program area extends from Mt.Tabor to the Willamette River between SE Hawthorne and SE Powell boulevards.
