Hall Creek Water Quality Assessment Project

Beautiful creek enhancement with trail and man-made log jams placed along creek for aquatic habitat

Cardno engineers delivered stream enhancements and concept renderings to improve a creek and enhance green space for the community of Beaverton, Oregon.

This project for the City of Beaverton provided stream enhancements to Hall Creek with several intended benefits.

These include:

  • alleviating flooding
  • improving storm water runoff quality
  • improving pedestrian circulation and safety
  • providing a green space that the community can enjoy,
  • and presenting an example of how a creek can effectively fit and interact with an urban area.

Through the use of an initial concept plan and detailed project scope, the City of Beaverton received a Nature in Neighborhoods capital grant from the Metro Regional Government Council.

The concept included parking lot modifications to a local business, sub-regional water quality facility design, multiuse path relocation and enhancement, and stream and vegetation enhancement.

The realigned section of Hall Creek was designed to provide a wide range of essential urban needs:

  • water quality improvement
  • runoff management
  • recreational and educational opportunities
  • beautiful landscapes and
  • wildlife habitat.

Cardno continues to support the City of Beaverton by managing annual monitoring inspection and reporting of the site’s vegetation and stream channel health and providing the city with improvement opportunities to meet performance standards.
