Stormwater for Challenging Sites

September 29, 2015

We may have forgotten over the long, hot summer – but it rains a lot in Portland. Our heavy rains can make it challenging to manage stormwater in our streets and at our homes and businesses.

The Bureau of Environmental Services is partnering with the SW Watershed Resource Center, Green Girl LLC, and other local organizations to offer a Stormwater Challenge Workshop Series.

This Sunday, check out the first class, Plan & Design Best Practices for Challenging Sites.

The introductory workshop explains what stormwater is, and its relationship with watershed health. Learn how to create landscape designs that are safe, simple, and environmentally friendly, regardless of your property’s condition. The class will visit several Portland-area homes, perform on-site assessments, and work together to create site designs.

In November, attend hands-on classes where you’ll work on real construction projects that reduce runoff and improve stormwater management.

The Stormwater Challenge Workshop Series is free and open to all. Visit the SW Watershed Resource Center‘s website to learn more and to register.
