NE Siskiyou bioswalesTwo curb extensions containing biofiltration swales installed at NE Siskiyou St and NE 35th Pl in 2003 are still looking great after nearly 5 years. This is the very first project in Portland combining curb extensions with landscaped swales to manage stormwater runoff on the street. According to BES the paired swales took 2 weeks to construct at a cost of $1700 $17,000.
