Environmental Services is finishing construction on the Sunnyside East Green Street and Sewer
Project in the Sunnyside Neighborhood to repair, replace, or install 4,800 feet of sewer pipe. Some of the pipe replaced was 100 years old and deteriorating due to age. Environmental Services built 16 green street planters and will replace or plant 26 trees to remove 2.4 million gallons of stormwater from sewer pipes.These improvements protect public health, property and the environment and reduce the possibility of sewage releases into streets, homes and businesses in the Willamette Watershed.Green streets manage stormwater runoff from streets, add green space to neighborhoods and improve sewer system efficiency. The sewer and stormwater improvements will increase sewer capacity, manage stormwater more naturally, and reduce the risks of street flooding and sewage releases to homes, businesses and streets. Environmental Services installs and maintains the planters, and there is no cost to the adjacent property owners.
Please be aware that schedules are subject to change due to a variety of factors, such as conditions underground, weather, traffic impacts, and subcontractor and materials availability issues.
