Measuring the new site

FrOGS visited our proposed pilot project site. You can see us here measuring the site and talking with the homeowner. This site is perfect for a Simple Green Street. We plan on putting a bioswale into the planting strip (between the curb and the sidewalk). Initially, this will treat stormwater from the yard and sidewalk, but later we will apply for a permit to cut an inlet trough the curb. This will allow stormwater from the street into the facility.

Photos from our recent visit to NE Portland, where we conducted a site assessment for our potential first Simple Green Street project.
