Environmental Services has completed the Lower Powell and Green Street and Sewer project to replace and repair 4,500 feet of sewer pipe that is over 100 years old and in poor condition, construct 22 green street facilities and plant 11 trees to absorb rain and reduce stormwater runoff. The sewer and green street infrastructure improvemnets will keep about 1.6 million gallons of stormwater out of sewers annually, increase sewer system capacity and reduce the risk of basement backups. This project is part of the Tabor to the River Program, which combines green infrastructure with pipe repair to save Portland sewer ratepayers more than $60 million dollars.
