Ecologically Engineered Stormwater Management — Five Case Studies
This study evaluates the costs and benefits of using ecological stormwater management instead of traditional engineered solutions in urban environments. Using five cases, all within the Colquitz watershed in the District of Saanich, British Columbia, it found that ecological stormwater systems can offset infrastructure costs, reduce a development's environmental impact, and lessen chances of downstream flooding and hence flooded basements.
