STORMWATER KIDNEY™ POND IN CHESTERMERE, AB INNOVATES AND CONTRIBUTES TO THE ENVIRONMENT AND LIVING EXPERIENCE OF RESIDENTS, WHILE SIMULTANEOUSLY PUTTING DAWSON'S LANDING ON THE MAP
The team at Qualico Communities Calgary was faced with a challenge in the form of a zero-discharge requirement for Dawson’s Landing, meaning they would have to find an alternative draining method or wait 10 or more years for a regional ditch system to be constructed. Their search for an alternative led them to the groundbreaking Stormwater Kidney™ Pond.
The Stormwater Kidney™ Pond is a multi-functional innovation that holds stormwater, while concurrently managing any peak-storm floods and purifying water to reduce algae buildup. It will also add to the nature-driven lifestyle of the community and will fit in perfectly with the planned Eco-Park.
The Stormwater Kidney™ Pond is just over 13 acres large, and in being constructed turned Dawson’s Landing into the first residential community in the world with this technology.
