  • We made this video a couple of years back, but it still illustrates very well the problems that face urban creeks and what can be done about them. Save our Urban Creeks from Tualatin Riverkeepers on Vimeo. When it rains, water runs off of the urban landscape, down storm drains, through pipes, to the nearest […]

  • How is Your City Using Urban Forestry to Protect Creeks? Urban creeks get hammered by erosion and pollution with every storm.  Polluted runoff goes directly from street to stream through storm sewers, carrying pollutants from rooftops, parking lots, streets and sidewalks at high velocities that erode stream banks and stir up old polluted sediments. PCC […]

  • The City of Beaverton is in the process of master planning Cooper Mountain for suburban development. This 2,290 acre area at the southwestern edge of Beaverton consists of hills, farms, forests, and creeks that flow into the Tualatin River. This planning process provides a unique opportunity to “design with nature”, so that people and the […]

  • Urban streams throughout the country suffer from the effects of development. With every storm, stormwater runoff rushes off of rooftops and pavement, and is piped to the nearest creek through storm sewers. Runoff carries pollution from the streets and landscape, and seriously erodes stream banks and causes flooding. In the Tualatin Basin, parking lots cover […]
