George Fox Biofalls beginning install!

The district is working with George Fox to do some work on campus in order to improve how storm water makes its way to Hess Creek.  The district helped George Fox by helping them apply for an OWEB small grant, which is to work on watershed improvement projects.

This project is installing what we are calling “biofalls” to the area where the outlet pipe from Fulton St parking lot drains into Hess Creek.  Now the outlet pipes have about a 10 foot drop which is causing massive erosion problems.
