WEAVING GREEN SOLUTIONS INTO CIP PROJECTS
The City of Portland, Bureau of Environmental Services (BES) believes sustainable stormwater or green solution technology has matured sufficiently to be used as a viable solution in its Capital Improvement Program (CIP). BES recognizes that green solutions provide multiple benefits to its ratepayers and the environment. The common types of sustainable technologies that BES uses are landscape infiltration basins, swales and planters, porous pavers/pavement, and green roofs or eco-roofs. This paper will describe the drivers and resources needed to properly consider green facilities in conjunction with traditional pipe solutions to provide a complete solution to hydraulic performance problems in the City's combined sewer system. Two recent BES pre-design projects are described as examples of this practice.
