Rocky View County - Bearspaw Master Drainage, Flood Response and Implementation Plans

Project Description:

The MDP and FRP developed by MPE provides guidance for future development and a framework for solving existing drainage concerns in the Bearspaw area.
 
The MDP developed design guidelines, recognizing the limited capacity within the catchment area. It also proposed to utilize and provide proper outlets and spills from existing natural ponds: re-interconnecting ponds that had been inadvertently blocked or redirected by development activity. The MDP also falls within the Nose Creek Watershed, so recognized recently adopted release rates and promoted BMP’s and LID’s within the framework.

Rocky View County - Greater Bragg Creek Master Drainage Plan

Project Description:

The Master Drainage Plan (MDP) provides guidance for future development so existing infrastructure, wetland and riparian areas are protected. The study area covers 49km2 and has a total catchment area of 820km2.

The plan identified potential developable areas considering existing constrains including wetlands, riparian and steep graded areas, limited culvert capacity and permitted ASP development densities. Design guidelines were developed to manage stormwater peak flows and volumes to mitigate against downstream environmental impacts.

Policies to manage existing and future development were provided.

Western Irrigation District - Stormwater Guidelines

Project Description:

Western Irrigation District receives stormwater runoff directly into their conveyance channels. Stormwater runoff from developed lands carries significant nutrient loading, high volumes and high rates. Their conveyance channels are significantly stressed. The WID required development of stormwater guidelines that the development community would follow when allowing release of stormwater into the conveyance channels. A framework for stormwater policies aimed at new urban developments was developed.
