Storm Pond Sediment

“What ideas or solutions might the City of Calgary, industry partners and communities explore to reduce cleaning and disposal costs associated with stormwater ponds?”

Calgary has over 130 stormwater ponds that provide an invaluable service to Calgary’s communities. The ponds absorb stormwater run-off during rain events and help to mitigate flooding risks from storms and prevent sediments from flowing into Calgary’s creeks and rivers. Over time stormwater ponds fill up with sediment that is costly to remove and there is no current use for the material.
