Project Overview

Updated August 3, 2017

Environmental Services has completed the design of a stormwater management project in the Argay Terrace neighborhood in northeast Portland. When it rains, water flows over streets, drains into the stormwater system and flows to the Columbia Slough. This project will build 53 green street planters (see map below) next to sidewalks. The planters will filter the stormwater before it enters the slough, helping to protect water quality and control stormwater runoff during heavy rain events. Construction is expected in September 2017.
