Forest Estates Green Streets


As a part of the County's effort to protect our waters, Forest Estates was selected for a Green Streets project to help reduce stormwater pollution that drains into our streams. Green Street projects generally involve installing small-scale stormwater practices within the County's right-of-way to capture water from roadways and sidewalks during storms.

Residents within the Forest Estates project area can also help reduce stormwater pollution by installing a stormwater practices on their property through the County's Targeted RainScapes Neighborhood program.

Various public events will be held through out the project phases for residents to learn about the project and to provide input on the design of the project.
