September 2011

Kevin Timmins, an Otak water resource engineer and project manager, was asked to speak this past Sunday (Sept. 18th) as part of a preconference workshop at the 2011 Pacific Northwest Clean Water Association Annual Conference being held in Vancouver, Washington. The workshop entitled “Green Stormwater Infrastructures: Now that they are in your system, what do you do with them?” was designed to provide attendees with an in-depth review of the theory and operations of green stormwater infrastructure, including vegetated swales, rain gardens, and porous pavements.

Kevin, along with two dozen other conference attendees, spent the afternoon traveling by tour bus around North Portland visiting and discussing different Green Stormwater Infrastructure sites. Agency representatives from around the Pacific Northwest were present, including Clean Water Services; West Sound Utility District; Kitsap County Public Works; Cities of Boise, Lake Oswego, Corvallis, Coeur d'Alene, Everett, Salem, Portland, Rexburg, and Tacoma, and the Washington State Department of Ecology.
