INTRODUCTION

As stormwater is absorbed into the ground it replenishes aquifers and flows into streams and rivers. In developed areas, impervious surfaces prevent stormwater from naturally infiltrating into the ground and the runoff water can cause stream bank erosion, habitat destruction, infrastructure damage and downstream flooding. Nilex’s stormwater mangagement solutions are meant to mimic the natural hydrology of pre-construction (natural state) to post-construction by utilizing Low Impact Development (LID) techniques.

SOLUTIONS

A rain garden is used as a Low Impact Development (LID) stormwater management solution which promotes evapotranspiration. Rain gardens are designed to withstand the extremes of moisture and concentration of nutrients that are found in stormwater runoff. On the surface, it is an attractive...

Bioswales are designed to maximize the amount of time water spends in the swale, which aids in removing pollutants and silt from surface runoff water. Bioswales are commonly used in parking lots and passive gardens...

Infiltration/Detention Systems are used as extra water storage capacity. They are designed to manage excess volumes of water to infiltrate into the ground, or discharge, at a given rate into the stormwater infrastructure...

Roadway and parking drainage allows for rapid removal of water from the surface into a controlled storage capacity directly below the surface. An effective solution, such as PaveDrain, will result in quick stormwater management through high infiltration rates...

RIEL PARK PLAYING FIELD DRAINAGE

In April 2009, the City of St. Albert opened the first phase of the Riel Recreation Park Redevelopment which included a new high-end artificial turf multipurpose field…
