Environmental Services will begin building your 53 new green street planters in the Argay Terrace Neighborhood in January 2018. The project also includes moving some water pipes, replacing some stormwater inlets and re-constructing some intersection sidewalks and ADA ramps.
When it rains in this neighborhood, water flows over streets, drains into the stormwater system and flows to the Columbia Slough, carrying pollution with it. The green street planters are built next to sidewalks to clean and filter the stormwater before it enters the slough to protect water quality, reduce the risk of basement backups, and help control stormwater runoff during heavy rain events.
