* “Greenstreets are streets that include median and streetside planters or swales that capture stormwater runoff and allow it to soak into the ground as soil and vegetation filter pollutants. This replenishes groundwater supplies and keeps polluted runoff out of our streams, rivers, lakes, and oceans. Greenstreets also make attractive streetscapes that connect business districts, neighborhoods, parks and schools, and they can be designed to accommodate the diverse traffic needs of cars, trucks, pedestrians and bicyclists.” (adapted from the City of Portland)

Hosted by: WaterTalks Team and the Safe, Clean Water Program's Watershed Coordinators
