Langley, BC — Located in Langley’s Willoughby Heights neighbourhood, Westbrooke is a Qualico Community that features one of the largest underground stormwater detention facilities in North America. The sustainable and innovative facility is the first-of-its-kind in the Township of Langley, servicing a 127-acre catchment area. The facility was a requirement for development approval for Westbrooke I, as the Township of Langley establishes development prerequisites in its neighbourhood plans that must be secured before any development application will go through. One of those prerequisites was to secure the land and construct the stormwater management facility that would service the whole catchment area.
