We are very fortunate to work with a developer that is keen to have ongoing monitoring of their development on lakes and groundwater near their sites. We have partnered with the Dalhousie Centre for Water Resources Studies who will help us understand the natural conditions of lake and groundwater before homes and roads are built. They will generate digital models of the site and the impact it has on the surrounding water systems. These impacts will be compared to that of a conventional development using computer modeling. This is the beginning of a long and beautiful relationship that will help us understand and hopefully promote low impact development practices elsewhere in HRM and Nova Scotia.
We would love to know your thoughts on stormwater in your community and on your property. Consider taking our short survey to help us learn more!
Stay tuned for updates on this project, and for information on upcoming talks.
