Renaturing SE Portland by creating green streets and roofs

GREY TO GREEN UPDATE

Dean Marriott, director of Portland's Environmental Services, and Anne Nelson, environmental program coordinator for the Willamette Watershed, give us a progress report on the Brooklyn Basin Project. In this section of inner southeast Portland, the city is trying to replicate the hydrologic functions of the once free-flowing Brooklyn Creek, that now runs under streets, sidewalks and buildings from Mt. Tabor to the Willamette River. Recreating the creek's function will be achieved by constructing bioswales, rain gardens and ecoroofs throughout the neighborhoods that are now built on top of the creek.
