Hassalo on 8th – N.O.R.M.

Hassalo on 8th is a four-block, sustainable urban development. Pending LEED Neighborhood Development Platinum certification, Hassalo on Eighth has the highest level of certification in renewable, clean energy development, and is one of the first urban neighborhoods to treat and recycle its wastewater on site.

Biohabitats designed as an onsite wastewater system nicknamed NORM (Natural Organic Recycling Machine), this decentralized treatment and reuse system is designed to divert 100% of the wastewater generated in the three new buildings away from the municipal sewer.

The project lessens the burden on this public utility, staving off costly repairs and infrastructure expansion, which garnered considerable support from the City as well as the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality. It is also a popular sustainability feature on the site.
