Quail Street Green Infrastructure Project
The project was a demonstration project and is collects the first three inches of rainfall in separated storm sewers and porous pavement in the maintenance areas between sidewalks and curbs. This runoff is directed to bio-retention basins below grade, and returned to the combined sewer system once the flow in the sewer subsides.

Beaver Creek Phase 6
Over 20 years ago the Albany Water Board initiated stormwater sewer separation around Albany High School, and at several other locations on the Beaver Creek sewer shed. This work was referred to as Beaver Creek Phases 1 through 5.
With the completion of phase 6 in 2019, the Albany School District and AWD now have over 2 million gallons of separated storm sewer controlled by real time controls.
