The proposed Sequoia Grove executive residential enclave is a 5-hectare site located near the Credit River in the City of Brampton. Stormwater management for the greenfield site is proposed via LID measures within the public ROW and within a linear bioswale.
Scope of Services
TMIG was retained to establish a functional servicing plan for a proposed residential development. The site was recognized as an opportunity to undertake a pilot project that would study the implementation of LID measures. The stormwater management strategy is based on implementing distributed low impact source and conveyance measures in lieu of traditional storm sewers and a water quality treatment SWM pond.
The project included the preparation of an LID study to assess measures suitable for the site conditions. From a servicing perspective, the distinctive features of this development are the bioswale and non-standard ROW with underlying infiltration trenches, which will provide the boulevard with all of the mandatory stormwater treatment, meet all of the water balance requirements, and meet the City of Brampton design criteria for drainage management. Oil grit separators and rain gardens will provide pre-treatment for the ROW runoff. No stormwater management pond is required for this development, rather distributed low impact stormwater practices will be implemented to manage precipitation where it falls.
