Buckman-Kerns Green Street and Sewer Project

Updated December 20, 2019

Sign Up for email updates buttonEnvironmental Services – your sewer and stormwater utility – is designing a project in the Buckman and Kerns neighborhoods to upsize, repair, or replace sewer pipes and construct green street planters to manage stormwater runoff from streets, roofs and parking lots. 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 in the Willamette Watershed.
