LTWC In the News! Over 60 Volunteers Help Plant in HIV Alliance Stormwater Facility

Urban Stormwater & Habitats Specialist Sarah Whitney, and Administrative Assistant Trisha Maxfield coordinated a volunteer event Sunday, May 7th with HIV Alliance in Eugene to plant over 600 plants, with the help of 60 volunteers! The planting event helped to put the finishing touches on a significant stormwater project at HIV Alliance’s new site.

A project under the council’s Urban Waters and Wildlife Program, this “Trout Friendly Landscape” will treat storm water leaving the HIV Alliance site – the plants and soil will slow the water coming off the site, and filter pollutants before the water reaches Amazon Creek, the Long Tom River’s major urban tributary.
