JUSTIFYING SUSTAINABLE STORMWATER FACILITIES IN SEWER DESIGN PROJECTS: PORTLAND'S SUCCESSES
The City of Portland, Oregon Bureau of Environmental Services (BES) finds itself in the middle of a transition of its application of sustainable stormwater facilities. For several years, BES advanced sustainable stormwater technology in the Pacific Northwest by constructing many demonstration projects, experimenting with designs, and evaluating facility performance. Despite these successes, progress to include these technologies in typical BES design projects has been measured. Recent BES capital projects to improve its combined sewer system broke the ice to allow sustainable stormwater facilities to become standard alternatives to solve sewer capacity problems. This paper describes the approach used to justify these facilities as viable solutions.
