Portland: Clean River Rewards

City of Portland, Oregon: Clean River Rewards

The City of Portland’s Environmental Services manages the city’s stormwater system using green infrastructure, pipes, sumps, and the wastewater treatment plant. The City also promotes private stormwater management.

One way the City does this is its Clean River Rewards program – the City’s stormwater utility discount program that rewards ratepayers that manage stormwater onsite with up to 100% discount on their stormwater charges. Both residential and commercial customers are eligible for the discount. To further foster participation the utility provides a number of resources including:

  • Free workshops to show consumers how to register for the program and how to manage stormwater on their property
  • Onsite technical assistance to help ratepayers determine suitable stormwater options for their site
  • A commercial calculator to help businesses determine their potential discount amounts depending on the size and capacity of onsite stormwater management options

More information about the City of Portland's Clean River Rewards program is available here.
