TimberMill Shores utilizes local waste concrete and asphalt as aggregate, fill and base rock for development of its
roads and foundations. This lessens the burden on the local landfill and minimizes the amount of virgin resources
required for new construction.
TimberMill Shores occupies a previously designated Brownfield site. By adhering to strict Federal and local
remediation standards, this land is no longer a burden on the local environment. Additionally, developing brownfield
sites rather than building on virgin land helps to maintain natural ecosystems and reduce urban sprawl.
TimberMill Shores captures and treats 100% of its storm water on-site, in addition to a large portion of the
downtown storm water run off. Treating storm water on-site reduces the amount of infrastructure needed, maintains
natural ground water flows and levels, and utilizes natural methods of water filtration which ultimately helps keep
our drinking water safe. TimberMill Shores will filtrate and cleanse a large portion of the downtown storm water system. Prior to
TimberMill Shores, a direct City storm line discharged directly into Lake Ewauna without any filtration or
protection from harmful oils and garbage. TimberMill Shores designed and engineered a system that would be capable of
treating both the developments' and the City's storm water needs prior to discharging into Lake Ewauna. TimberMill
Shores can be proud of its efforts to provide a system that not only serves the development, but helps with the City
system as well. Ultimately, this is a huge benefit to Lake Ewauna and the entire Klamath River system!
All pedestrian paths at TimberMill Shores are heated with geothermal heat. The use of geothermal heating, both
outdoors and for building heating, is a viable and cost effective alternative to using fossil fuels for heat.
All building owners in TimberMill Shores are encouraged to utilize this naturally occurring heat source.
All landscape mulch at TimberMill Shores is a byproduct from a local log dock site. Using a waste product from
a source a mere one mile away reduces the burden on the local landfill, transportation pollution and costs, and
it just makes good sense!
